Ask yourself these three questions:
- What is preventing me from loving God and loving others?
- What is the obstacle for me to become the person God wants me to be?
- What is making me struggle to do the will of God?
The answer(s) to these questions are the things that enslave us.
We need Jesus to set us free. He does this through his Holy Spirit. We need to invoke the Holy Spirit every day.
If we are not free, we will not experience the fullness of joy, peace, and life that God has in store for us. When we become free we can become the person God wants us to be. When we become the person God wants us to be, we become fruitful in everything that we do.
Our natural inclination is to go back. But, we were created for freedom. The Lord wants to set us free so we can experience the fullness of life, joy, and peace.
