Have you ever tried to explain freedom? Hmm, it’s pretty tricky isn’t it?

Two images come to mind for me. Standing on top of the Drakensburg Mountains, looking out as far as the eye can see. Breathtaking! Or standing on the beach letting the waves ripple over your feet. Peaceful!

The opposite of being free is being trapped. No one wants to be trapped!

Trapped by the bad things we do. Or by the opinions of others. Circumstances in our lives may trap us.

Enter Jesus. Enter freedom.

Jesus brings forgiveness. His opinion on us is far different from others. And no matter our circumstances (poverty, brokenness, lonely), Jesus shows us our lives in a fresh perspective.

That for me is stepping into freedom
