One of my favorite Bible verses about freedom is, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36) and this is so powerful when you fully understand and embrace the liberty that comes through the Lord.

As Christians we find joy as we celebrate our freedom.
Freedom from sin. Freedom from doubt. Freedom from shame. Freedom from fear. When the Lord brings you His freedom and love nothing is sweeter.
So why do we struggle so much to accept this sometimes? I pray these Bible verses about freedom will help you embrace the way you’ve been loosed from all bondage, shame and sin.
