As he passed a small child, the boy exclaimed, "So what. I'm four!"
Yeah, it's a dumb joke, but our freedom is a big deal! It's a big deal to God as well - so much so that he purchased our freedom with Jesus' blood! It's a freedom from the bondage to sin and death and one that enables us to live life as it was meant to be experienced. Jesus called it an abundant life; life to the full!
The crazy thing is that too many Christians choose to walk back into prison and slam the cell door closed. They take the gift of salvation through Jesus and decide that they need to add something more to it by adding a list of rules to follow. The Apostle Paul refers to it this way:
So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.
