A Priceless Freedom


Spirited, and as if tireless, for long, souls had gambled lives and limbs trying to dive into freedom's seemingly abyssal crimson depth-of-no-return seeking to fathom it. And even though as if they were holding on to only a loosely moored dive-line-of-hope as their guide, but seemingly at last, a flash of light appeared all of a sudden amidst the abyss' darkness.

Alas, with all the countless valor sacrificed, the bittersweet reward to savor now is the finding of a bargain of the kind of freedom that to this world is highly regarded and appreciated.

But the greater challenge on freedom is not in the hardships of the struggles that people have gone through (or must go through) to achieve freedom. It is in how people ought to live their lives within the kind of freedom they have achieved (or will achieve).

True Freedom: O how priceless you really are that it costs the Savior's holy blood to be shed for your sake.

[Galatians 5:1] 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.

[2 Corinthians 3:17] For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

[Galatians 5:13-14] You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

[John 8:36] So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

[1 Corinthians 6:12] You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything.

[1 Peter 2:16] Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.

[Re]discovering your calling


Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Listen to His word and you shall know wisdom. Meditate on His word and you'll learn to delight in Him; and His word shall empty your old heart and fill it with Godly desires, and then you will [re]discover your calling according to the gifting He had bestowed upon you.
