365.57: Freedom

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"

I'm looking out my window and thinking that if I'm not free for the sake of running a muck with self-indulgence, what exactly am I free from? Here's some thoughts:

I am free from...
  • the power of sin in my life
  • the need to prove my worth to others
  • man-made expectations (beauty, weight, success, wealth, "good" parenting)
  • caring what other people think about me
  • serving myself over God and others

What is it that Jesus has set you set free from?
