I know this is a lyric from Mumford and Sons' "Sigh No More", but it can so very much be applied to what we're taught in the Bible. And I love it. Whenever I hear this song and sing these words, I sing them to my Heavenly Father, worship Him and just praise Him deeply for these truths.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."
"For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery."
"Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God."
-1 Peter 2:16
"For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another."
"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit."
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
