Maybe you remember the end of the movie Braveheart. William Wallace, the Scottish hero, is being tortured. The king wants him and his people to give into his power and rule. But Wallace suffers through it. He won’t give in. And the very last word that he shouts as he marshals all his strength is he lets out a loud cry of “FREEEEDOOOOM!” I have to believe that the directors of that movie must have had in mind Jesus doing the same thing from the cross. After the shedding of his blood, Jesus shouted out, “It is finished.” He could have shouted out “Freedom!” Freedom from our sins. Freedom from the guilt that they carry!
