For, brothers, you have been called to liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
Dr. Fletcher was passing the Old Bailey one day, and saw a couple of boys turning somersaults, standing on their heads, making wheels of themselves, and all sorts of things; and he stopped, and said, "Why, boys, whatever are you at? You seem to be delighted;" to which one of them replied, "Ah! and you would be delighted, too, if you had been locked up in that jail three months. You would jump when you came out." And the good old doctor said he thought it was very likely he should. And the man who has been called unto liberty by Christ, knows the sweets of freedom, because aforetime the iron had entered his soul.
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
