Our country has laws which its citizens are expected to follow. If we break those laws, we can expect to be prosecuted and punished for our crime. Sometimes that punishment includes spending time in prison. But when we obey the rules of the country, we enjoy freedom. Freedom from the penalties of law is nice, but freedom from the penalty of sin is much greater. When we follow God’s guidance–His precepts–we can enjoy freedom the burden of guilt and regret and self-recrimination. Sometime our own personal “jail cells” are worse than anything the law could inflict upon us. Jesus came to give freedom from sin’s snares. Follow His will for your life and enjoy freedom.
