True Freedom

The blood of Jesus
Purchased our freedom and gives
Perfect liberty.

breaking chainsI hope you liked my little haiku. So, are we free in the Holy Spirit? If not, we’re slaves to sin, however much economic, intellectual, or physical freedom we claim to possess as Americans. The only keys to spiritual freedom are repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Here are some Bible verses (NKJV) and Christian songs for your perusal. God bless you on this Fourth of July weekend.

  • “I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts.” – Psalm 119:45
  • “The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners.” – Psalm 146:7
  • “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?” – Isaiah 58:6
  • “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” – Isaiah 61:1
  • “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. … Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” – John 8:32, 36
  • “But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.” – Romans 6:22
  • “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” – 2 Corinthians 3:17
  • “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” – Galatians 5:1
