Freedom with Jesus...
"As a result, we can at last love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds, and love our neighbors as ourselves."
"How can we nurture this new freedom? How can we prevent relapse into addiction and codependency? First, we must live with Jesus, the only fully free person on this planet, day by day. As we experience his freedom, we will be set free from our attachments, compulsions, and addictions."
"Jesus found his freedom in open communion with God, serving as a channel for what the Father wanted to accomplish. Consequently, Jesus was free from any external code. He had no need to check out how people felt about him in order to know how he felt about himself."
