Spiritual freedom means having a firm foundation of truth formed in our hearts from God's Word so that we may stand our ground against the enemy and overcome him in our own lives. Spiritual freedom consists of being who we were designed to be, accepting God's love, and loving God, ourselves, and others in return. True freedom is the thrill of experiencing the unmasked fruit of the Spirit as it comes from a heart that has been cleansed by the Word's water.

What is meant by spiritual freedom?
How the natural and spiritual realms operate so differently is one of life's most profound mysteries. Spiritual liberty in God is the ultimate freedom, and it can only be attained when a person abandons their carnal nature and accepts Christ to be Lord and Master of their lives.
What is spiritual freedom in the Bible?
The grace-based freedom of God's children. This is far more than self-determination and the ability to do as one pleases. It encompasses the true power of the will to do good and avoid evil, but in the context of the greater freedom that Christ has bestowed upon us (Gal 4.31). Sin, on the other hand, is the loss of that freedom for which God created man and Christ redeemed him, when a human being made in God's image and likeness rejects to share in God's freedom.
Law and liberty. The 7th chapter of the Epistle to the Romans laments the plight of the man whose sense of freedom is self-centered and who is externally subjected to the written law. Such a man is incapable of comprehending that God's law is a law of liberty: “The Law really is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous, and good” (v. 12). Man is a slave of sin when he has this unspiritual mentality, and as a result, he cannot truly be submissive to God's rule. Only when a man opens his heart, humbly and gratefully, to God's love and the needs of his neighbor can true submission to God's law, the gift of God's loving will, be recognized and embraced. Man, who is a prisoner under the law because of his self-centeredness (v. 23), is nevertheless in some ways the image of God and thus believes that the law is something good. He offers it his limited approval. However, he does not truly and sincerely identify with God's law, nor does he see it written in his inmost being, nor does he feel it as a call to his deepest and finest possibilities. But he still longs for complete liberty and shouts out: “I'm a miserable man! Who will be the one to free me from this death's body?” (See verse 24). “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has released me from the law of sin and death,” says St. Paul, referring to the spiritual freedom provided by the law of the Spirit (Rom 8.2).
True freedom cannot be achieved solely by external law. It discovered man to be a slave, greedy and confined in his attitude toward God, his neighbor, and hence the law. The law's power was eroded as a result of this mindset (Rom 8.3). True liberty
What truly is freedom?
In general, freedom refers to the power to act or change without restriction. Something is “free” if it can easily alter and is not limited in its current state. It is associated with having free will and being free of unnecessary or unfair restraints, or enslavement, in philosophy and religion, and is strongly linked with the concept of liberty. A person has the freedom to accomplish things that will not be hindered by external influences, either in theory or in practice. Freedom does not have this political or psychological component outside of the human realm. A rusted lock may be oiled to allow the key to turn freely, undergrowth could be chopped away to allow a newly planted sapling to grow freely, or a mathematician could investigate an equation with many degrees of freedom. The mathematical idea can also be applied to a body or system bound by a set of equations, whose degrees of freedom indicate the number of independent motions that are allowed to it in physics or engineering.
The first written reference to freedom appears during Ur's Third Dynasty (c. 2112 BC c. 2004 BC) as Ama-gi, which literally meant “return to mother” in the sense of release from bondage or indebtedness.
What Jesus sets us free from?
We are set free from the taint of sin thanks to God's redemptive plan. “For sin's wages are death, but God's free gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 6: 23 ESV). Instead of spiritual death, we have spiritual life.
The spiritual separation from God that occurred as a result of Adam and Eve's first transgression is known as spiritual death. Those who have ABCDed, or are no longer separated from God, are spiritually alive.
What is Jesus true freedom?
Keep in mind that you were saved by grace. Grace is your way of life. By grace, God will carry out His plan in your life. Christ sets you free so that your actions aren't motivated by a desire to gain God's approval. Your approbation is based on what Christ has already accomplished, not on what you do. When you realize this, you are free to carry out God's plan for your life with no agenda or ulterior goal other than a heart filled with love for Him.
The power or right to act, speak, or think without hindrance or limitation is defined as freedom in the dictionary.
That sums up what Christ has accomplished for us.
Only one thing remains for you to do.

What is false freedom?
Excessive specialization, or the freedom to study only those things that are easy, entertaining, or monetarily successful while retaining the liberty to think as you choose about other issues, can produce a false sense of freedom.
