What’s Freedom in Christ? Can I do anything I want?

I read the following post from WorshipTraining.com with Dan Wilt and thought it did a good job of answering this question succinctly.

Holiness. From Matthew 5:20 in The Message: “Unless you do far better than the Pharisees in the matters of right living, you won’t know the first thing about entering the kingdom.”

If Jesus brings to us any one characteristic of the heart of the Father, it is that God is gracious and redemptive. Freedom rules in the Kingdom of God, but it is not a freedom that grows without parameters. To be truly free is to recognize that our emotions and backgrounds can lead us into ways that destroy our very freedom in Christ. Right living is understanding what nurtures our spiritual freedom and living within those liberating borders.

His prayer:

Lord, I want to understand the freedom that is found in Kingdom living. Teach me your path to freedom.

Amen to that.

What does freedom in Christ mean to you? Do you agree or disagree with this quote?

Jonathan Sigmon
