What Jesus calls his followers to is a way of life that is so countercultural it’s almost beyond our comprehension. Jesus calls us to be free from something in order to be freed for something better. God set the Israelites free from slavery in Egypt so that they could be free for a covenant life with God. Jesus sets us free from sin and death so that we can be free for discipleship. In the story of the rich young ruler, Jesus calls us to be free FROM the money trap, in order to be set free FOR eternal life.
- Luke 18:18 - 30
- Galatians 5:1
