In the United States of America, July is a month that is associated with freedom. But what is freedom, in it’s truest sense? Is it political freedom? Or maybe financial freedom?
Freedom: the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
We believe that even those with great political and financial freedoms can struggle under bondage of another kind. Likewise we’ve been inspired by those who suffer under political or financial bondage, yet have found the ultimate freedom, spiritual freedom.
For the remainder of this month we want to join in with you and study true freedom, and how following in God’s way makes us truly free.
“When we obey Satan, we give him power. When we obey God, He gives us power. This is not the message we get from the world, but it is the truth. Real power, the power to become like the Savior, is only found in obedience. Real freedom is found in obedience—in subjecting ourselves to God’s will rather than to the will of the flesh or the will of the devil. Freedom through obedience: this sounds like a paradox, but those who have lived this way can testify it is true. Obedience brings power, freedom, joy, peace, and hope.” – Paul V. Johnson
