I will say to the prisoners, ‘Come out in freedom’, and to those in darkness, ‘Come into the light’ (Isaiah 49:9; NLT).

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17; NLT).

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10; NLT).

If I am to walk
In your freedom
And your light,
I need to be able
To speak the truth with love
To others.

If fear stops me from doing this,
Then I’m not free at all.

May your Holy Spirit
Give me courage
And kindness
In equal measure,
So I can speak out,
And have life to the full –
Free from fear,
At last.

Through Jesus’ name,
