What does it mean to be free? To have the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants without hindrance or resistance. The absence of subjection.
Satan, in his subtle way, put our first parents (Adam & Eve) in bondage through the sin of disobedience Gen 3.24. But Because God is full of mercy, he himself came in the form man to reconcile us to himself

Why do we need freedom

1) Freedom is entitled to the children of God (to break us away from the bondage of sin) John 5:5-14
All unrighteousness is sin (anything not in standing with God). In the end, sin brings bondage.

What Brings Bondage:

1) Anger, Bitterness, retaliation. 2 Kings 3:13-15; Eph 4:26-27, Mark 11:25, Prov 19:19, Prov 19.11
2) Sorrowing instead praising God. Acts 16:16-40
3) Disobedience Gen 3:24, Gen 3:12
4) Abusing God's grace Eph 6:12, Eph 2:5-6, John 5:14,
5) Sexual Immorality 1 Cor 6:19, Matt 5:29

When you allow any of these reside in you, then you are letting the accuser of brethren stand against your blessings. Job 1:6, Job 1:7, Job 2:1, Rev 12:1
