A helium balloon has the power to fly, because of the helium that has been put inside of it.
The only way a helium balloon won’t fly is if you tie it to something that is heavy and will hold it back onto the ground, or if you hold onto the balloon.
We are like helium balloons.
We have the power inside of us to fly and be free (the power that is given to us by Christ Jesus), but we let things of the world hold us back and capture us.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1 NIV
Jesus has set us free on the cross! Let go of the things of this world that holds you back and fly in your freedom with Him by your side.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17 NIV
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
John 8:36 NIV
We have freedom, because of Him.
