When we become followers of Christ, we are set free.
But more than that, we become liberators: primarily, of the people around us – our friends, our families, our co-workers.
We liberate them from our pride, our arrogance, our anger, our hatred, our petty cycles of vengeance, our selfishness.
It’s not just a matter of liberating them from their sin. It is first a matter of releasing them from our sins.
“It is for freedom” – perhaps, for the freedom of others – “that he has set us free!”
