But true freedom can only come through a life lived in God’s presence, listening to his spirit dwelling in our hearts. And that freedom is amplified when we come to God and leave behind all the cumbersome things and draw us away from true communion with him. True freedom is giving our whole life to Him.
This morning I read a prayer in my daily devotional by Billy Graham, “Our Father and our God, thank You for the great liberty I have through Jesus Christ. I recognize that my freedom came at an enormous price to You and Your Son. And I bow in humble gratitude to You for that amazing gift. Help me to take the Good News about Him to the tired, the poor, the lonely masses who are longing to breathe free. Through Christ, the Liberator. Amen.” ¹
