I believe as a Christian we have sought towards freedom. We determine to attain it every day, minute and second of our time while we are living in this earth. Have we found it? Still looking around? Have we got it? Still searching? Or have we truly enlightened and achieved in our essence, the truth spirit in us that truly want to strive for this proposition of letting ourselves free from the bondages and oppressions of this world.
We go to church every Sunday and every times there is a popular preacher coming to town. We tried to be trained, have power over and experience first-class to be free. We circumstantialize condition to make us at ease, confortable and free. Have we ever ask ourself in rationale, what are we soughting this freedom and liberty about?
Many have explanation to dispute thinking that they would find, “freedom” but alas ended up in the road of repression and entanglement. Strap and trap in it own disposition without road and space to escape. Many forget that the freedom is always started with the central commandments of God, while there is other of different faith searching on daily basis searching for this “freedom”? Are we free within the scope of our mind and soul for us to be uninhibited from the obstruction of this worldly nature that stricken us towards insecurity and of fathom fear.
We have heard many times from the bible to be free but do not know how, we understand that our spiritual core must be liberated within us and this can only be done by seeking after God precepts and commandments. True seeking after God percepts will not make us free but it is only when we start breathing in the conviction and reality of Jesus in us. Thereafter we will transform ourself in much deep faith we found out to our surprise this “freedom and liberty” is just right beside us. That right, it is just beside us not only a finger away. Not only it is beside us it is also in us.
Remember what when Jesus said, “ … good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over….” Luke 6:38 (KIV). The same way that you give liberty to God to surrender your life to the fullest in all His ways He will make sure that this “freedom” that have been measure will be given back overflow and overwhelm to and by many of this life, attentiveness and surety in testimony through adverse situation cometh out victoriously. God is indeed in control over everything
Psalms 119:45-55 (NIV)
45 I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. 46 I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame, 47 for I delight in your commands because I love them.48 I lift up my hands to your commands, which I love, and I meditate on your decrees.49 Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. 50 My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. 51 The arrogant mock me without restraint, but I do not turn from your law. 52 I remember your ancient laws, O LORD, and I find comfort in them.53 Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law. 54 Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge. 55 In the night I remember your name, O LORD, and I will keep your law.
Definitely this freedom, He dramatize us to utilise our skill and talent to serve and feed His Kingdom that is so at large. It is not by works alone that drive us to serve the sheep but it is the similar faith that Jesus Christ’s heartbeat that we have cultivate and breed the oneness of His Spirit in and through us driven us to have love and compassion over the lost soul and the forsaken.
Yes in conclusion this freedom that we have through God is given to us to be Spirit driven, preserve in the Spirit of God and share the independence and goodness of His wonderful gospel wine to others.
This is the price of Christian freedom.
