People like to say they are free. They love to dream about being free. Free to do as they please. Free to fly. Free to imagine all kinds of surreal joys. But frankly, we don’t know what freedom is.
How about these:
Free to live forever.
Free to love without reservation or suspicion.
Free to move without any physical restraint.
Forever free from Pain, anxiety, fear, doubt, and any other negative experience.
Free from lies, temptation, forgetfulness, mistakes, harassment, anger, and so on.
And all this freedom forever!
What people want, what they dream about all day and all night, is in the hands of Jesus to give. What does he ask in return? “Love me more than these.”
