Freedom Sermon Illustration

However, freedom for a Christian does not mean the absence of rules or laws to live by. Christian “rules” for living are summed up in their relationship in Christ. Christians are free to live not as they want but to live in Christ and his ways. An example of this freedom can be understood in the sentence “You are free to move about the cabin” when you are on a flight. A person can take off their seat belt and freely move, but there are still some restrictions, for their own good and the good of others on the flight. For example, they can’t freely move into the captain’s chair or outside of the plane.
