The Lighthouse Family – “(I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to Be) Free”
Back to the theme of freedom.
Galatians 5:1 (OSB) Paul writes- “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”
Considering that slavery was common back then, and considering that many of the people hearing the Word would have been slaves, to modern sensibilities, this may sound ludicrous. How can this apply to someone enslaved?
And yet, I don’t know if there is such a thing as a life lived without history, without consequences, and without constraints. Part of living, I suppose, is choosing these things carefully, and choosing things that we are the master of rather than things that we are destined to be controlled by. In our own lives, wherever we may be, we’ve got to create that place, even if it’s only in our heads, where we are free, where there is comfort in embracing the Truth (for we know the Truth sets us free).
