Colossians 1:13 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

What is liberty?

  • Freedom to exercise free will
  • Not being subject to powers which you did not choose
  • freedom to serve and worship God
  • Not being under the influence of ungodly people or idols
  • having all you need to worship and serve him

What is the purpose of liberty?

  • to truly serve God
  • to make decisions without fear
  • to be free to be a Christian
  • to have the power to make a choice about your life

What keeps people from being free?

  • pressure
  • law of sin and death
  • the world’s system
  • territorial power of spirits
  • laziness and ignorance

How can liberty be preserved?

  • you must move from the kingdom of the world to the kingdom of God
  • you need to embrace the kingdom of heaven permanently

What are the implications of liberty?

  • all Christians who received atonement are free
  • however, the body is not free, temptations are still coming
  • even if people are out of bondage (e.g. the demon left), habits still stay in people and can oppress
  • if you fall in temptation you need to command your body to listen to the word and embrace the word
  • there is the concept of self-inflicted bondage: Our DNS is damaged and not perfect anymore.
  • therefore you need to permanently align your mind with the kingdom of heaven and walk with the spirit

Our Prayer for you:

  • you shall experience real freedom
  • you shall live in purity.
