What is True Freedom?

This weekend, many people here in the United States will be celebrating “freedom.” A large number of those people don’t really know what true freedom is.

I encourage those of you who are believers to take some moments of time outside of barbecues, fireworks, and splashing in the lake to pray for those near you who may not know the true meaning of freedom. Take the time to share how they can have a freedom that doesn’t begin with laws or more education or a better job. If you tell just one person the gospel this weekend, you have been a messenger of true freedom.

…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? (Rom. 10: 9-10, 14 ESV)

Are you a person who doesn’t know Christ? Or perhaps you call yourself a Christian, but you’re not really sure what that means and it hasn’t changed your life in any way.
