Friday, July 31

Jehovah is the Spirit, and where the spirit of Jehovah is, there is freedom.—2 Cor. 3:17.


To enjoy and benefit from that freedom, we must ‘turn to Jehovah,’ that is, come into a personal relationship with him. (2 Cor. 3:16) The Israelites in the wilderness did not view Jehovah’s dealings with them in a spiritual way. It was as if their hearts and minds were veiled and hardened, focused only on using their newfound freedom from Egypt in a physical, or fleshly, way. (Heb. 3:8-10) The freedom that is associated with the spirit of Jehovah, however, is more than liberation from physical slavery. Far beyond what human efforts can hope to achieve, the spirit of Jehovah brings liberation from enslavement to sin and death, as well as from slavery to false worship and its practices. (Rom. 6:23; 8:2) What a glorious freedom that is! A person can enjoy the benefits of such freedom even when imprisoned or enslaved.—Gen. 39:20-23. w18.04 9 ¶3-5

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

Only Jehovah has absolute freedom. Jehovah has given us the gift of free will, which brings us true freedom. This gift allows us to make decisions that show how much we love Jehovah. So let us continue to make choices that honor him and remember that the limits Jehovah has set on our freedom are for our protection. When everyone accepts these limits, we can all enjoy true freedom. Have a great day!
