Live Free

Authors: Ben Crawshaw

Freedom. What does that word mean to you? No rules? No boss? No stress? No matter how you define freedom, it’s probably something you want. Because freedom allows you to truly live as you truly are.

Now think about this: What would freedom look like in your relationship with God? That’s tougher to answer, isn’t it? For most of us, God and freedom don’t go together naturally. Our thoughts typically drift to words like obedience, discipline, and good behavior. And while those are great things, what if God actually wants something more for us? Something better?

That’s what Live Free is all about: discovering something better.

This five-week, interactive journal (for students and anyone else looking for some grace in their lives) gives us a glimpse into Paul’s journey from religion to relationship. It reveals how an encounter with Jesus forever changed Paul’s view of God, other people, and the world.

Because of Jesus, Paul learned to live free. And so can we.

Live Free, by Ben Crawshaw, is part of the XP3 Devotional Series, interactive journals for students.
