Freedom isn't free - it cost Jesus everything...
"Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
(II Corinthians 3:17) We are free to be “re-made” – changed into a new creature in Christ.
"For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God." (Romans 8:20-21).
Galatians 5:1 says this:
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (NIV)
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (KJV)
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. (NAS)
Don't take your freedom for granted...
Now for a little fun...

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, Oh, Oh"
You're gonna leave 'em falling down -own - own ...
