Freedom as a son of God

Christ has delivered us from slavery to the corruption of sin. He has set us free, so that we may know the freedom found in knowing Him who is true, for only God is true. Rom 3:4. Freedom can never be found apart from knowing Him. The apostle John wrote that the Son of God came to give us an understanding that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 1Jn 5:20. Jesus said, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.’ Joh 8:31-32.

God’s word of truth sets us free to be the sons of God He planned for us to be. In fact, this is our only freedom! Our freedom as sons of God is only found as we remain true to His word for our lives, and as we remain ‘obedient’ to His word. This is what is called our ‘sanctification’. The will of God for our lives is our sanctification. 1Th 4:3.

Living a sanctified life means that we are not free to be anything other than what God has planned for us to be. We are not free to give ourselves to other things. We are not free to be preoccupied with the worries of this world, the deceitfulness of riches and the desire for other things. Mar 4:19. All of these things cause the seed of God’s word within our heart to slowly die.
