Christian Freedom:

As we look ahead to our celebrations of Independence Day on July 4, we have the opportunity to consider what we think when we hear the word freedom. Perhaps, we understand freedom as being the opposite of obedience – that freedom implies no obligations and no commitments; the freedom to do whatever we please apart from any laws or restrictions, to do whatever we want.

          Among the many issues that the apostle Paul tackles in his letter to the church at Rome is Christian freedom – how we understand freedom in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ in which we are called to live our lives? Paul sees freedom, not as freedom from obedience to anything or anyone, but rather freedom for living in obedience to the will of God. Paul is clear that the freedom from sin which we have been given through God’s work in Jesus Christ is a freedom in which we now are able to live lives of righteousness. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness” (Romans 6:18).
