A collection of Bible verses about freedom. These scriptures will bring you strength and victory in whatever season of life you are in.

Bible Verses about Freedom

I remember when I first experienced God’s freedom in my life. I was just a young teen at the age of 15 when Jesus radically saved me and set me free of a ton of demonic influences in my life. 

I will never forget after my deliverance how much freedom I felt. Words can not describe the peace, and relief I felt that day and still experience to this day. I tasted God’s freedom and I am never going back! 

Today I wanted to share some powerful Bible verses about freedom. I thought this would be an important topic to add to my topical Bible Scriptures which you can use for studying. 

I have broken down some of the Bible verses into sections. You can hop to the section you like or read through all of them!

In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety.

Bible Verses about Freedom from Sin 

Romans 6:18-22 NKJV – 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I speak in human [terms] because of the weakness of your flesh.

For the end of those things [is] death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.

Hebrews 2:14-15 NKJV – 14 In as much then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
