The hymn In the Garden is the first song that I heard in church that points to a personal testimony. The chorus of In the Garden suggest that God walks and talks to Christians. In today’s featured song, Micah Tyler uses a series of true stories, testimonies of sinners who have testified about Walking Free despite being behind bars.
In [this] freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]; stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off], Galatians 5:1.
Walking Free reminds me of one of the first Christian movies I saw called Twice Pardoned. While the story was different, the message is the same, God’s grace and forgiveness, Ephesians 2:8-10. If you like to watch sports, some athletes celebrate way too much. Yet, as Christians who have been saved, there isn’t enough celebration over the fact that in Christ we are walking free.
