Greater Freedom Than You Can Ever Experience in This Life
The creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. Romans 8:21 (NIV)
Thank God for our freedom! We enjoy the blessings of freedom in many ways, but not all. We still experience the frustration of bondage to decay in our flesh—decaying teeth, high cholesterol, loss of muscle tone, aching bones, and wrinkled skin. We are not yet free from sin, failure, sickness, disabilities, accidents, suffering, pain or sorrow, enemies, danger, disasters, or death.
Jesus Christ promises a greater freedom than we can ever experience in this life. We’re talking about freedom from sin, sickness, and suffering—freedom from fear, failure, and frustration—freedom from dangers, disasters, and death.
The promise of Jesus Christ is that you will enjoy this freedom in your soul and in your resurrection body. Paul says, “We… groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies” (8:23).
God’s rescue is more than saving your soul; it is redeeming your life—body, soul, and spirit. And it will be complete on the last day when you meet Jesus Christ. Everything that you are will be redeemed, made perfect, adapted for eternity, and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. Paul says, “In this hope we were saved” (8:24).
