Memory Monday – Week 39
One of my favorite songs around middle school/high school was Freedom by Darrell Evans. At that time, I probably didn’t fully understand the lyrics or the chorus, which are from 2 Corinthians 3:17. Now that I understand, I see how profound this verse is.
2 Corinthians 3:17 says, Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
We know that the Lord is the Spirit (The trinity is made up of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit). But the second half of this verse tells us that we are called to live in complete freedom because of Him! When Jesus died on the cross, it cleansed us from all sin and all bondage. We were set free and covered in His freedom and grace. Because if this, we can live in complete peace, joy, and love.
I wrote last week about living an abundant life. I think living in complete freedom is part of living abundantly! Stop living in bondage to your finances, your health diagnosis, your job, your infertility…. I don’t know what it is, but God wants you to cling to who you are in Christ and live in the freedom that He bought, paid for, and desires for you!
