What it Means to Be Truly FREE

Most everyone loves the idea of being totally and completely free, but few of us understand what that really means or how to achieve it. We want to be able to live life as we want, doing what we want, when we want. But how can we become truly free?

In "The Message," Eugene Peterson offers a surprising answer in the subtitle for Romans 8:1-11:  "The Solution Is Life on God’s Terms."

As written in verses 5-7:

"Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life."
