Bible Verse for Today
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)
Freedom is the ability to decide and control yourself. It is given to us to reveal human beings’ true goodness and beauty as God’s creatures. Freedom is a gift from God because we cannot be free from our sins without divine grace. That is why Jesus says: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (Jn 8:32).

But we know from personal experience that it is not enough to wish to be free. We have to do something about it. We must obey the instructions of the Bible and follow the guidance of the Holy Ghost. It is not enough to hear or read God’s Word; we must practice it. The word of God must become the basis for every action in everyday life. Then, we have the freedom to say “No” to sin.
How is your freedom ordered? First, we must pray that God will give us the courage to seek the freedom that belongs to us in Christ. Because he died on the cross to free us from the power of sin, and we can get rid of our problems.
Freedom is yours, dare and take it. Follow the Holy Spirit and rejoice in all that God has given you through Jesus.
