It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1 NIV
A perversion of freedom that isn’t freedom at all has clearly been sold to mankind.
But we don’t really need help to find our way to bondage
for the seeds of destruction are in our minds.
Almost anything that starts out worthy, can be twisted or taken to excess.
Too late, we find ourselves in currents fast and deep,
thrashing about to swim out of the mess.
It can be hard to wrap your mind around,
that giving yourself away makes you free.
But it’s just what God promises when you reconcile with Him,
the scales fall from your eyes and you see.
