Freedom and Equality Can Only Be Achieved Under God

"Today, many people are living in spiritual slavery without realizing it. They chase false gods of money, success, personal comfort, and romantic love—only to realize they still have an emptiness that can’t be filled by any of those things."

At the point when you do not put God first in your life, you will feel guilty and you will miss out on the freedom God intends for you to feel when you follow Him. God is just and loving, so we are called to do justice and live in love!

At the point when you are a Christian, you have the Holy Spirit living within you. One of the occupations of the Holy Spirit is to convict us when we are not living for Christ (John 16:8). God doesn’t censure us when we have been spared by Jesus (Romans 8:1), however, God convicts us of wrongdoing so we can atone rapidly from any transgressions we submit and keep on being purified.

God loves justice and because God is one, and because God is both just and loving, justice and love cannot be essentially incompatible or distinct. In God’s character and purposes, they meet and agree. Certainly, justice and love are united in God.

So when you are not putting God first every day, you will know this in your heart, and along these lines, you will live with a feeling of the blame since you comprehend what you are doing. God will excuse you in a split second and expel your society whenever you admit and apologize, yet when you don’t atone the sentiment of the blame with remain. For as Psalm 32:3-7 states:

For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night, your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him. You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.”

None of us will be flawless on this planet, in this way we will consistently be totally reliant on God’s beauty to cover us. Be that as it may, we despite everything need to apologize rapidly to encounter the endowment of his elegance.

Hence, in the event that you need to encounter the opportunity God needs everybody to have thorough confidence in Jesus Christ, at that point you should live for God consistently putting Him first. Jesus pursued justice. … “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and please the widow’s cause,” (Isaiah 1:17). “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8).

Throughout the Old and New Testament, our call to do justice is clear. “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute,” (Psalm 82:3). “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and please the widow’s cause,” (Isaiah 1:17)

The mission for the opportunity and/or freedom is a topic found all through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Only three sections into the account of God’s creation, humankind surrendered its opportunity by deciding to oppose God. From that time forward, the ideal opportunity God made in the Garden of Eden was gone, and the drawn-out impacts were both physical and otherworldly.

The Old Testament of the Bible records how God’s people lost their physical freedom consistently as different realms surpassed them (most strikingly the Egyptians, as recorded in the book of Exodus).

The loss of physical freedom was frequently attached to spiritual disobedience & defiances like revering bogus divine beings or false gods. Be that as it may, consistently, the one genuine God pardoned His people and saved them. At the point when God liberated the Israelites from subjugation in Egypt, He was hinting the appearance of Jesus Christ, who came to liberate mankind from transgression—the spiritual slavery that leads to death.

“Today, many people are living in spiritual slavery without realizing it. They chase false gods of money, success, personal comfort, and romantic love—only to realize they still have an emptiness that can’t be filled by any of those things.”
