Free to Be … Empty of Me!

I look around inside these four walls and I can see this is not my home.
Can you hear it now, from inside these stone walls?
My heart cries out, I’m not where I belong.
No matter what they do, my heart belongs to You.
I’m free!
Oh the hands that hold the world have set me free.
He has broken every chain, so I lift my hands up to the One who saves.
Take me captive, you can lock me away, but my debt is already paid.
Take me prisoner, but I will not fear ’cause my Deliverer is already here.
No matter what they do, my heart belongs to You. I’m free!
Oh the hands that hold the world have set me free.
He has broken every chain, so I lift my hands up to the One who saves.
This world can have its way. Nothing can stop Your glory.
What may become of me, I’ll over come because I’m free.
Oh, the hands that hold the world have set me free.
He has broken every chain, so I lift my hands up to the One who saves.
And I am free! Oh, these chains won’t hold me and I am free!

We have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong. Do not change and go back into the slavery of the law…My brothers and sisters, God called you to be free, but do not use your freedom as an excuse to do what pleases your sinful self. Serve each other with love. The whole law is made complete in this one command: “Love your neighbor as you love yourself… So I tell you: Live by following the Spirit. Then you will not do what your sinful selves want. Our sinful selves want what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is against our sinful selves. The two are against each other, so you cannot do just what you please. But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not under the law… But the Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. There is no law that says these things are wrong. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their own sinful selves. They have given up their old selfish feelings and the evil things they wanted to do. We get our new life from the Spirit, so we should follow the Spirit!

Plagerized today … 🙂 Thanks, Paul. Since these words are inspired by the Holy Spirit, I’m confident that my little sermon through my blog today is of great value and full of truth.

Lord, Your word is everlasting; it continues forever in heaven. (Pm 119:89, NCV)
