Tolstoy: freedom

Wednesday, October 5, 2022
    Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
    —2 Corinthians 3:17 (NIV)
    A Christian cannot help being free, because in the pursuit and attainment of his object, no one can either hinder or retard him.
    ... Lyof N. Tolstoy (1828-1910), The Kingdom of God is Within You [1894], in The Complete Works of Lyof N. Tolstoi, v. XIV, New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Co., 1899, p. 196 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 3:17; Isa. 61:1-3; John 8:32-36; Rom. 7:6; 8:1-2; Gal. 3:25; 5:1,13; 1 Pet. 2:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your redemption is freely available.
