God is the most love-filled being in the universe. As humans, we attempt to have unconditional love for each other. Most of the time, we fail miserably when it comes to giving love unconditionally. We are human, imperfect, and we are born with a sin nature. Our best attempts to act in ways that are pleasing to God are filled with our own selfishness. None of us can compare to the glory and holiness of our perfect God.
Even though we can never come close to living sinless lives, God loves us in ways that we cannot comprehend. Because of His great love for us, He desires for us to live in freedom. God did not create us to live our lives in chains. God has given us the key to unlock our chains. That key is His Son, Jesus.
God is the freest, most joy-filled being in the universe. The more we enter His presence, the more we experience His freedom and joy. In recovery, we experience freedom and joy when we allow God to take the load we’ve been carrying. There is nothing that compares to the freedom we experience when God removes the burdens of our past. Recovery in Christ allows us to live in the freedom God had always intended for us.
