Freedom!

freedomFreedom is a critical concept to the follower of Christ. Paul says that while we WERE slaves, now we “have been set free”.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

This quote from Galatians 5 has Paul telling the church that our spiritual freedom can and should wash over our physical lives. True freedom begins on a spiritual level and manifests in increasing waves in the physical world. “Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.”

It is not a coincidence then that the scriptures use the very vivid image that the “borrower is slave to the lender”. Regardless of our current financial situation, I don’t see any scenario where we don’t strive toward a goal of debt free living. This isn’t a criticism but an aspiration. Whatever situation we find ourselves in currently we should be asking: Do I have it as a written goal with action steps to be debt free?

“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free truth will set you free.” Are you more financially free now then you were 1 year ago? How about 5 years ago? Will you be more financially free 1 year from now? How about 5 years from now? HOW? Write it down.
