Freedom For A Price

I had just finished watching a Korean Drama series in Netflix entitled “Itaewon Class,” and this was one of the lessons that stuck with me: Freedom has a price.

For the lead character, the price of his freedom included years in prison, years in manual labor, and years of having that desire to seek revenge. Won’t put in all the interesting plot twists so I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t watched. But it is worthy to watch for me.

Anyway, having this in mind, I was also reminded of another type of freedom that came with a price…


That kind of freedom that was paid by one life on the cross…

Jesus had to come down from heaven, live amongst us, then died a sinner’s death. All to set us free, to save from sin, and to those who believe in Him, achieve eternal life. He had to feel pain, hunger, thirst, which I believe, as someone who is in and from Heaven, cannot and should not feel.

And I found verses that capture what I’m trying to say…

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
Romans 8:1-4 | NASB

That’s it…

So whatever freedom we have right now, we should always remember what it cost, so that we wouldn’t take it for granted.

[Did I make sense? I honestly cannot fully articulate… let me know please? You might have words that we all need…]
