Our lives are different in the Lord, since being free people we can worship our Creator with all freedom and with great joy in our hearts.
When we are slaves of the world, fear prevents us from approaching our God, being different people, receiving true love, being good people. But once free, we can get all of this.
When a person is blinded by the enemy, when he thinks that everything in the world is the most important thing, this person is being a slave, because he has a huge blindfold on his eyes that does not let him advance.
In order to obtain that freedom that you really need, you must renounce the world and all those around you because the Lord is more than all these things.
Let’s remember something very important, God is the one who can make us free, but free from everything the enemy put in to keep us totally blind. There is only one who wants our well-being, who wants us to walk freely, our hearts to be joyful, and we can sing hallelujah! Looking at the heaven.
That is why in Galatians we find a reading that tells us about freedom in the Lord and how we should use that freedom correctly:
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
Galatians 5:13 (KJV)
Here Paul exhorts the inhabitants of Galatia to be free, but without abusing that freedom, to make good use of it, because He freed us from the world and from all things that were around us so that we can see the clear path and at the same time we can sing joyfully to the glory of our God.
