17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17 [source]
Liberty. Sweet Liberty. Who doesn’t want it?!
Lets refresh ourselves with the definition.
1. The condition of being free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor.
2. The condition of being free from oppressive restriction or control by a government or other power.
Where the Spirit of the LORD is, THERE is liberty.
Where the Spirit of the LORD is.
And who is the LORD?
19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. Mark 16:19 [source] (The next verse is sweet, sweet. I hope you will use the source link and read it.)
I draw certain inferences from this and I am confident they are valid.
1. Real, genuine, Holy Spirit filled people make wherever they are better, not worse. Not restrictive, not squashed, not kill-joys.
2. Remove Holy Spirit filled people and so goes LIBERTY.
It’s as simple as that.
