Freedom From and For

Post by Pastor Dave

How many times have you heard it said that America is the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”  Wonderful words from “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Freedom.

Cherished freedom.

Where would we be without it!

It is one of the greatest gifts this country gives us.

Freedom.

All kinds of freedom.

 

But are we really free?

Or are we like the Jews in today’s text and just don’t realize how trapped we really are?

Are we free…from worry…from doubt…from fear…from illness…from death…from…from…from…?

 

Is it possible that the only real freedom comes not from America but from God?

What is it that you need to be freed from?

And an even more profound question  –  what is it that you have been freed for?

God has set us free – but for what purpose?

What are we supposed to do?

How are we supposed to live?

It’s not enough to say that we have been freed FROM something  –  we have also been freed FOR something!

What is that something?
