John Stott once described the Christian as someone who possesses "a submissive spirit, namely their a priori resolve to believe and obey whatever Scripture may be found to teach. They are committed to Scripture in advance, whatever it may later be found to say."
Whatever it may teach or say.
This is the freedom of the child of God.
I'm not bound to this or that cultural trend... I'm not bound to the shallowness of my own opinions or the times in which I live... I'm not bound to the fear of displeasing this person or having to please that person...
I'm bound to Jesus Christ, as revealed in his Word. Therefore, I am free.
