It is for Freedom

A youthful lady . . . jogging on sugary white beaches . . . the ocean waves pounding into the sand . . . strips of linen are hanging and flowing from her, blowing in the wind . . . they were wrapped around her but are now coming off . . . strips of linen, the grave clothes that have made it hard to run . . . difficult to run the race set before her when she was bound . . . but now she runs in the freedom that Christ gave her . . . the smile on her face and the joy of the Lord permeates her entire being . . .

GALATIANS 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.

ISAIAH 61:1 The spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness the prisoners.

2 CORIN. 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the spirit of the Lord, is there is freedom.

Do you want to go to the place they call freedom? Do you want to see like the free see? Do you want to dance in the land they call freedom? Do you want to see like the free see? Do you want to go? Do you want to go? Jesus, come take us to the foot of the cross where we have been brought now (lyrics from Desperation Band's "Freedom Song")
