To follow-up that point, here's a passage I read this morning in Bruce Ware's Father, Son, & Holy Spirit (which I hope to review soon):
It appears, then, that we need to learn something about the nature of true freedom. Freedom is not what our culture tells us it is. Freedom is not my deciding, from the urges and longings of my sinful nature, to do what I want to do, when I want to do it, how I want to do it, with whom I want to do it. According to the Bible, that is bondage, not freedom. Rather, true freedom is living as Jesus lived, for he is the freest human being who has ever lived, and one day we will be set free fully when we always and only do the will of God. So what is freedom? Amazingly, Jesus' answer is this: Freedom is submitting - submitting fully to the will of God, to the words of God, and to the work that God calls us to do.
Amen! What a wonderful Savior, who would set us free as He is free!
