L is for Liberated
I wanted to use freedom for my word starting with F, but I chose friend instead. So, I’m excited to use liberated now. Liberated is defined as freed from slavery, imprisonment or enemy occupation. Synonyms are saved, rescued, redeemed, unshackled, acquitted (remove blame)
I’m thankful Jesus set me free from the penalty of sin and the power of sin in my life.
“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you” Is. 43:2
“Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth. Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Is. 43:19
“To open blind eyes, to bring our prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house.” Is. 42:7
“The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them.” Ps. 34:7
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me. You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies and Your right hand will save me.” Ps. 138:7
“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Gal 5:13-14
“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.” Gal. 5:1
“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” Eph. 3:12
“I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.” Ps. 119:45
“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.” Acts 13:38-39
Excellent choice to wait for L for liberated! I find myself wondering and trying to guess what word you’ll come up with next! Liberated is better because it pulls in the idea that we were prisoners before, whereas freedom doesn’t have to mean from previous bondage… just thinking out loud.
Thanks! Good thoughts – if I rework this post, I’m going to expand on liberated to include this
