Freedom in Christ
Do you think that freedom is being able to do what you want and do you think that happiness can be bought with money? A person has seen millions of advertising images before he/she is an adult. Do you think that doesn't affect someone? If only we had this or that, then we would be happier. We are so pressurised into thinking in certain ways. That doesn't make us free at all. It only makes us prisoners of desires we have been tempted with by others. Or the movies/shows you watch, the music you've been listening to since you were young. You don't think that changed (or formed) your look on important matters such as love, sickness, life and death? The entertainment world makes everything romantic and beautiful, and offers us fake freedom. Why are you interested in such matters and lukewarm for real problems of the world and lukewarm for the message of Jesus on (which you know is) real love. A lot of people that believing in God brainwashes someone or makes someone a slave of certain rules. well, it does if you do not believe with your heart. If you know the whole Bible by mind but not by heart. Freedom in Christ means to be able to understand the law with your heart, to be able to love it only, to be able to do every good without compulsory. For this freedom we abandon our own will, we ask for God to shape our will to His so that not anything we want to do is for ourselves and against Him. Then He will pour out His blessing. He will send the Helper to persevere. Freedom is this; being able to do, and only wanting to do anything that's good!
