[F]or if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10, portion
Freedom is found in the lack of chains.
A Psalmist wrote, “ I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2). When we make our decisions before God and man, do we understand that He is all that matters?

Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Psalm 104:1-4 KJV
Paul wrote that whoever we present our members to obey, we are their slaves (Romans 6:16). There is no difference if we do it entirely knowingly or whether we do it by instinct. Jesus said that whoever sins is a slave to sin (John 8:34).
God covers Himself with light as a garment. It robes Him, like a cloak. He surrounds Himself with the glory, majesty, and splendor that is due Him, for He is God.
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
John 10:10 (portion)
The beginning portion of this verse says that the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. Jesus said that He came not only that we might have life, but have it to the full! The moment we begin to think that in some way, that this fullness of life has anything to do with this life, let us remember the apostle John’s words.
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:15
Many in the church would like to go deeper, they honestly would. Despite modern church culture being filled with the seeds of the devil with false wisdom such as “Don’t be so heavenly minded you’re no earthly good”, or “God doesn’t want us to be perfect”, or, even the more scripturally documented lies such as “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the Lord, and He is pleased with them.” and “God isn’t going to judge.” (Malachi 2:17), despite these, many people would actually like to get free from the sin in their lives. Some people are actually still grieved by the sin that they cannot seem to get free from.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life.
