Abundantly Free!

Especially here in the United States - a country that began with our famous "Declaration of Independence" - we are definitely a people who value our freedom. But how free are we really? Sadly, much of what we think will give us freedom can actually an obstacle to it. Meanwhile, we may be ignoring or limiting the real source of freedom. For as Paul wrote,

"Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we’re a free people—free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free! He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making." (Peterson's "The Message")
