INSPIRE TODAY with Rev. Yomi Kasali - LIBERTIES WITHOUT LIMITATIONS

LIBERTIES WITHOUT FREEDOM

The recent protests by some people at the RCCG headquarters against one of the most if not the most revered man of God in this Nigeria got so many responses and triggered some reflections on the subject of Liberties. It is quite disturbing to realize that people can ‘march to a church’ to protest on issues that are not doctrinal or moral in nature.

The social media is the engine of Liberties in this new age, anyone can say anything and anyone can do anything. Our newly found Liberties know no limitations and has caused some to post nude pictures on social media, talk trash, Abuse Elders, curse political leaders, insult pastors and church leaders, scam people, hunt for people to kill and do all sorts of things in the name of Liberties.

This has got me increasingly concerned about the path we are towing in this nation in expressing our views. Hence, I persuade believers today not to be swayed by the trends but by the scriptures to do what is right ONLY and not what is trending on social media.

Let me inspire you on what the Paul said about Tamed Liberties without caging our Freedom

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. (Gal. 5 v 13)

We can Use or Abuse our Liberties and Freedoms as a People to serve the flesh. I will like to inspire you today so that we can know where to draw the line with respect to our moral freedoms and civil liberties.

3 EXPRESSIONS OF LIBERTIES

  1. CAGED LIBERTY: This is what Prisoners go through in civilized nations; they are locked up in large premises and allowed to roam ‘freely’ within specified areas but their freedoms are ‘caged.’ I believe we should understand that this is done by external forces (Law Enforcement Officers) and for the benefits of those people also. Paul said, ‘I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord…’ (Eph. 4 v 1), so the Holy Spirit has restrained or caged many of us as prisoners to obey Him for our own good.
  2. TAMED LIBERTY: Adam and Eve were told to walk freely in the garden and expected to eat of every fruit ‘freely’ but not to touch the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen 2 v 16-17). The only way that was possible was to ‘Tame’ their Liberties so they would not offend the Lord. Paul said the same when he admonished is to ‘put our bodies under subjection lest after we have preached to others, we become cast away…’ (1 Cor. 9 v 27). I advise many young people to tame their liberties and not express them all.
  3. LAME LIBERTY: This is the Liberty that one does not really have and cannot fully express themselves. This occurs in political settings where a benevolent dictator leads the people. They are given some liberties but are really lame in nature and not full. This is not from the Lord but Satan also uses this to deceive the naive and gullible. Peter mentioned it this way, ‘while they promise them Liberty, they themselves are servants of corruption, for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought to bondage’ (2 Pet. 2 v 19).

Please be careful how you express liberties today and make sure you do not use the same to undermine the work of God and bring shame to the name of Christ.

I hope you have been lifted and Inspired.
