In light of July 4th, we as Americans live in a free country and have the liberty of Freedom but are in boundage in our mind, soul, and body.
Vise versa….there are many bonded with chains but live a free life because they are not bonded in their mind, soul, and body. They live freely and that is what we strive.
A way to be free is to stop being like a dog. Dogs bury bones and found items then return to dig up the buried item. Many of us walk away from our inequities and bad habits, but return to dig up those very things. That is why we remain bonded in a free world.
Here is another example! If you were a soccer player in the world cup, and you have to play against the team you used to play for, would you keep getting instructions from your old coach or would follow the play of your new team? Treat life as so.
Freedom comes from following your new mindset and not reverting backwards. Pushing forward will break all those chains that keeps you in bondage in your mind, body, and soul. Live freely in a country that gives you freedom.
But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed,and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
– Romans 6: 17-18
