What Would You Give To Know This Kind Of Freedom?

We talk often about freedom on Capitol Hill and there is no more defining  value for this country than liberty, beginning with our Declaration of Independence that proclaimed it for the nation and for every individual American.

But freedom from political tyranny is only one aspect of the whole meaning of the word and, when fully understood, it reaches into every corner of our lives; body, mind and soul. Jesus said “You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) What would it be like to experience that kind of freedom?

“No Longer Slaves” by Bethel Music gives us a great taste of what true freedom means.  Listen to the song here, then read the lyrics that are reproduced below after the video. Trust me, it can make you think more deeply than you ever have about what it means to be genuinely free:

And here are the lyrics (for those who, like me, have trouble deciphering them while listening to a song for the first time, and sometimes also the Nth time!):

You unravel me with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance from my enemies
‘Til all my fears are gone
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of GodFrom my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again to a family
Your blood flows through my veinsI’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I am surrounded
By the arms of the Father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance
We’ve been liberated
From our bondage
We’re the sons and the daughters
Let us sing our freedom

You split the sea
So I could walk right through it
My fears are drowned in perfect love
You rescued me
And I will stand and sing
I am a child of God.

You split the sea
So I could walk right through it
You drown my fears in perfect love
You rescued me
And I will stand and sing
I am a child of God.

Yes, I am
I am a child of God
I am a child of God
Yes, I am
I am a child of God
Full of faith
Yes, I am a child of God
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

No sermons, no judgement, no pressure, just two folks talking about how to make it on Capitol Hill and the world. Like it says above, I’ve been there, done that. So let’s talk.
