What is the first thing you think about when someone says “freedom”? Maybe the words independence, free speech, or the right to go anywhere come to mind. While this does sound like the actual freedom we still cherish in America, the Bible says freedom comes from another place. Let’s see what the Bible says about freedom by exploring 12 key Bible Verses about Freedom.
Where does Freedom come From?
I did a search on google to see what come up when I typed in “Where does Freedom come from?” I read several answers like “it comes from our constitution”, a definition popped up stating the “power of self-determination, state of free will; emancipation from slavery, deliverance;” and another answer jumped out, “when America declared its independence from Great Britain”.
During the holidays like the 4th of July, or Independence Day, it’s always a great reminder to be thankful for the freedoms we have in the United States. But, as Christians, should we rely on America to always give us the freedoms we enjoy today?
Nope. I’ll tell you why. While I believe America was built upon godly principles, the USA is not the answer to our everlasting freedoms. The answers lies within the pages of the most precious, most read, and most living book in the World. The Holy Bible.
What Does the Bible say about Freedom?
If you are wondering — what does the Bible say about Freedom, you’ve come to the right place. There are many Bible Verses speaking about liberty in Christ. The truth to where our freedom comes from is clearly stated in Galatians 5:1 KJV “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”
What does Jesus Set us Free From?
If you struggling with the question — what does Jesus set us free from? Jesus sets us free from the weight of sin. If you don’t believe you are a sinner, read my Romans Road to Salvation Post and then come back to these Freedom Bible Verses.
Why does sin cause bondage or weigh us down like slavery? Sin separates you from your Father who created you — he wants to have a relationship with you. Yet, you’ve rejected Him and His rules by essentially saying, “I don’t need you, I’m doing it my way”. You are not free, you are a slave to sin.
What is True Freedom?
God cannot look upon sin. Our sinful nature started when we were born because of the first sinful son of God, Adam. So, in order to be with you, He sent his son Jesus, a sinless man, to free us from our sins and be our substitute. So, the answer to the question, “What is True Freedom?” is….Jesus!
If you don’t believe sins are destructive andcauses problems, think about this:
- Do you ever lie to avoid confrontation?
- Do you find yourself heavy with a lot of guilt over past failures?
- Are you constantly battling negative thoughts?
- Struggling with an addiction to food, drugs, or shopping?
- Battling with depression, anxiety, or fear?
If you struggle with any of these issues, it’s simply a sin problem! Sin causes lack of confidence, the stress in everyday relationships, and many losses including money, friends, family, and so much more.
