What is true freedom ?

Freedom to choose, is the freedom to lose
Your path that leads to death,
Liberty given, escaping the prison
the cell that God calls “the flesh”.

To choose to be free, is not to agree
To the “I know what’s best for me” lie,
There’s a better way, for freedom’s displayed
When you’re free to live the Vine life.

Freedom is not the ability to do our thing, for that leads to our own death (see Frankie’s comment below). True freedom is the ability to choose the Life of Christ (the Vine Life).

Fool for Christ

When you are misunderstood
And people treat you like slime,
Because you love His Kingdom
Then you are a fool for Christ.

With your head now above the trench
You abandon the rest of your life,
To the message that brings disdain
Then you are a fool for Christ.

When you know how to go without
And you know how to be abased,
Your presence meets disapproval
Then you are a fool for Christ.

Others are so highly esteemed
And honourable in the crowd’s sight,
And your not in their prestigious company
Then you are a fool for Christ.

But you love the God who loved you first
And proud you’re identified,
With a no-reputation Jesus
Then you are a fool for Christ.

1 Corinthians 4:10 As for us, we are fools on account of Christ. But as for you, you are members of the intelligentsia in your union with Christ. As for us, we are those who are frail and infirm. But as for all of you, you are those who are mighty. As for all of you, you are those who are illustious, honorable, held in esteem by others. But as for us, we are those whom no one respects. (Wuest version)

But that is life in Glasgow

The impressive buildings on the Glasgow sky
Compliment life on the River Clyde
With its many secrets it cannot hide
But that is life in Glasgow.

From the understated Squinty Bridge
And George Square to Buchanan Street
Makes it hard for a “Weegie” to leave
But that is life in Glasgow.

A “Weegie” takes the good and bad
Supporting a British with Scottish flag
And tension flows between the clans
But that is life in Glasgow.

It’s music and it’s celebrity stars
Do not hide its gangster past
No such thing as a “Weegie” facade.
But that is life in Glasgow.

Glasgow life gets under your skin
The richness of a life it brings
A melting pot of good and sin
But that is life in Glasgow.
