Jesus was truly free. His freedom was rooted in his spiritual awareness that he was the Beloved Child of God. He knew in the depth of his being that he belonged to God before he was born, that he was sent into the world to proclaim God’s love, and that he would return to God after his mission was fulfilled. This knowledge gave him the freedom to speak and act without having to please the world and the power to respond to people’s pains with the healing love of God.

That’s why the Gospels say: “Everyone in the crowd was trying to touch him because power came out of him that cured them all” (Luke 6:19).

Emphasis mine

Now isn’t that the kind of power that we get from a relationship with Jesus?  from indentification with His death, burial, and resurrection?  Why then do we ask all those other questions that divide us, rather than make us one?  When will we learn, we are free and have always been free?  When will we live that we are free?
