So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 (NIV)
Freedom is an interesting thing. The opposite of freedom is imprisonment or enslavement. I remember lots of times in high school where I felt like I had no freedom. Everyone else was allowed to stay out later or were able to drive before I had my license. It always seemed like my friends and peers were having more fun than me. Have you ever felt like you were missing out on all the fun?
You aren't missing out on real life. Real freedom is in Christ alone. Living for eternity isn't glamorous, but it is purposeful and fulfilling. Wanting more of this world leaves us wanting more and momentarily satisfied at best. Freedom in Christ is forever and forever is a long time. We could chase after this world and be filled with regret and disappointment or be free, free indeed.
Lord, lead me in the way that I should go. Amen.
