But isn’t that exactly what we do when the Lord sets us free from bondage and we return to the same bondage from which we have been set free? I should know. I have done this time and again. I have marched myself right back into jail, locked myself inside, and then wondered how I get myself back in the slammer. Ouch.
It’s nobody else’s fault. It’s certainly not God’s fault. It’s entirely my own. So here’s the bad news, and the good news. The bad news? It’s hard, and it hurts to find myself behind bars once again. The good news? The Lord teaches us in His Word to hold onto our freedom. But for those of us who find ourselves back behind bars, forsaking our freedom, the Lord invites us to seek His forgiveness, receive His deliverance by His Holy Ghost through His Word, and enjoy true freedom once again.
Gal 5:1 “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”
