Voices: William Faulkner

Yesterday, I preached on Christian freedom using Galatians 5:1-6, 13-25. Today I came across the following quote from William Faulkner: “We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” [1] Faulkner was talking about freedom in general, but his words apply to freedom in Christ as well. Let us practice holiness and love; that we might be truly free.
