“I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts” Psalm 119:4 (NIV).
As a social worker, you work daily with people who are in bondage. People experience the heavy weight of chains to all kinds of things—addiction, low self-worth, poverty and homelessness, abusive relationships, lack of hope, worry and fear, negative thoughts, bitterness, and much more. Maybe you are also in bondage to something.
The definition of freedom is different for everyone. How one person understands freedom, another person may view as bondage. A non-Christian may look at Christianity and see a religion composed of rules and institutions that restrict independence. Similarly, a Christian may look at the life of those freely engaged in sinful behaviors as bondage and destruction. These are two very different perspectives. As Christians, we may understand our clients’ lives to be “a mess” due to the effects of sinful behavior in their lives, while they may see their choices as an enjoyable outlet or even their only option to live.
True freedom is not found in a set of guidelines or rules, whether these rules come from God in Christianity or man in society. We do not experience freedom by merely abiding to a code of “do and do not.” Freedom is found in a heart and life committed to God. Through life with Him, He sets us free from the laws of sin and death (Romans 8:2). He has redeemed and recovered us. This is the greatest hope we can experience.
What unnecessary yoke or chain are you carrying? How might your life be different if you experienced freedom from the thoughts, actions, and temptations that are holding you captive? This week, you are challenged to set these aside and grow in your relationship with Christ; you cannot do it alone, so ask Him.
