The Liberty of the Spirit by Toni M. Babcock
"…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (II Corinthians 3:17 KJV)
The liberty of the Spirit implies exactly that - the liberty of the Spirit. If the Word of God says "…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (II Corinthians 3:17 KJV), then it is God's liberty I am to be primarily concerned about, not my own. With this in mind, if the flow of my service to Christ becomes clogged by some obstacle, the liberty of the Spirit to use my life for the glory of God must of necessity become stopped up as well. So the question becomes, am I willing to shine the light of truth on myself and figure out what is robbing the liberty of the Spirit from freely working and moving within my life and out to others?
Once we understand and resolve the problem of attempting to serve Jesus while binding and grieving the Spirit and His work in our lives, we will be one step closer to experiencing true revival, for the joy of salvation is not the liberty to live as we choose, it is the liberty of the Spirit of God to live and reign within us as he chooses. David wrote, "Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free Spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners will be converted unto Thee," (Psalms 51:12-13 KJV).
