Freedom

You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. Romans 6:18

We are the redeemed. We are the ones whose freedom was bought with a price. Freedom is never free. Like love, freedom always comes with a sacrifice. Christ gave His life for us to experience a brand new freedom. This freedom is like no other. It’s not like the world’s freedom. The world opens the door of one prison cell that leads to another prison cell.

In our old lives, we thought we could find freedom in things we could master. We became diseased with our competitive attempts to feel better than others. “At least I’m not as bad off as they are” was our mantra. We could always find someone else we felt superior to in order to rationalize our sickness. Our addictions, compulsive self-reliance, pride, and attempts to control situations and others became our solitary confinement.

In our recovery, we have found that the very thing that once looked like imprisonment is actually our freedom. The chains of living lives centered around ourselves have been unlocked. We experience a brand new freedom and happiness. Self-seeking is slipping away. Our entire attitudes and outlooks on life are changed. We are a free people whose lives were bought at a price. The love that purchased our freedom is found in abundance in our recovery meetings. May we never take for granted what Christ did to purchase our freedom, and the rooms of recovery where we get to express the freedom He gave us.
