Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the spirit is the Lord is, there is Freedom

(2 Corinthians 3:17)

2 Corinthians 3:17 teaches us about the power, boldness, and freedom we have in Christ to grow in Christ-likeness. If you do not understand who you are in Christ, you will not be growing in Christ-likeness. 

We know that the Lord is the Spirit because the trinity is made up of God (the father), Jesus (the son) and Holy Spirit. The second half of this verse tells us that“where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." When Jesus died on the cross, it cleansed us from all sin and we forever get to live a life of freedom because of him. God desires abundant life for all, living in complete freedom so giving us "freedom to fly"
