{Galatians 5:1; ESV}

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

You were created to be free. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you’re also called to be free. Yet to experience this freedom there must first be an uprising—revolution of the soul. This is exactly what Jesus Christ calls you to. Your liberation will require you to see beyond the illusion of freedom—free acts that lead to bondage. Our freedom must never be about us alone. Freedom is the gift of serving others out of love. This is the freedom that only God can give, where we once again become like Him. It is here and only here that freedom exists without boundaries. You are free to love without limit, to forgive, to be merciful, to be generous, to be compassionate, to risk, to sacrifice, to enjoy, and to live.

Erwin McManus, Uprising, p. 12

Questions to Consider:

  • What does it mean that we have been set free?
  • How should we use our freedom?
  • Why is freedom so important?
