2 Corinthians 3:17 "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." ESV
Unfortunately, the concept of freedom in the Bible is tragically misunderstood. Freedom is not being able to do whatever we want to do, because all we have to do is ask for forgiveness and it will be just fine. Actually, freedom is being able to say no to sin. We are no longer held captive by our sinful natures. We are given this freedom from sinning through the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is then we are free to live righteous and holy lives in the sight of God.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for taking advantage of the freedom You paid so great a price to give us. Help us to trust You and be receptive to Your Holy Spirit so that we can truly be free to say no to sin and become more and more like Christ. In His name we pray, Amen.
