“Are you free to live your live your life how you want to? If so, are you doing it?”
Today our study in the book of Galatians focuses on the apex of this book where Paul explains that freedom is the whole point of everything. The Gospel is the power that frees us from the prisons of either overdoing or underdoing everything.
Join me now as we learn to see that our captivity is not imposed upon us by an external force as much as it is our unwillingness to simply walk right out into the freedom we’ve already inherited.
A dog crate with no door defeats the point of the crate because a dog seeking freedom simply walks away. In this podcast and post I will utilize a metaphor of a three-sided prison to help illustrate the tragic state of so many of us. Why don’t we walk out into the freedom we really want? Why is the prison we know preferred to the freedom for which we long? Once we gain the eyes to see the only thing left is to follow the voice that leads us out into the exile of freedom.
