When God frees us from sin, it’s absolute insanity to allow ourselves to be seduced back into slavery. But we do. Throughout my Christian life, the reason I returned to enslavement—over and over again—was because I never learned to live in the freedom of Christ. I never pursued Christ with complete abandon, because to do so meant I’d have to give up LOVING—the things of the world. I loved myself, my family, my possessions, my goals, my dreams, and so many things—more than I loved Christ.

I didn’t realize that my excessive love of those things—was enslaving me.

I nearly destroyed myself and–I hurt a lot of other people along the way. My pursuit of wealth, respect, friendship, love, possessions, etc., was a delusional seduction which produced perpetual dissatisfaction. Why does loving the things of the world not satisfy?

Because we were created to be satisfied by God.

When Christ graciously wooed me back to Himself and taught me to love Him—I began to experience sweet freedom. The experience of REAL freedom motivates me to REMAIN free. When we are born again, we receive a priceless gift—the ability to CHOOSE freedom. Jesus said: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.” (Luke 4:18‬) If you are living with a crushing sense of oppression—there is hope! Life with Jesus is a life of freedom!
