Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It sets you free. Jesus is the Word, the Word of God in human form. And Jesus sets you free. There are two kinds of free. Nothing is free it costs somebody… but the first kind of free is “at no cost to you.” The second kind of free is ‘no longer controlling you.’ What once controlled you, has no effect on you anymore. There are some good frees. Free ice cream. Again, nothing is free, but sometimes someone else pays for it. Sometimes you get a free sandwich at Chick Fil A – if you dress up for cow day… That’s kinda cool. But there are way better frees than that! Have you ever been Pain free? Have you ever been Guilt free? Drug free? Debt Free? Fear-free? Sin-free? Every one of those frees – God has for you. Every free you can imagine – God has for you. Jesus is the Savior, and the Healer, He’s the Deliverer and the Provider. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Do you need to be free of something? God can set you free. If you haven’t received Jesus as your Savior, and your LORD, you cannot be free. You are bound by sin, born in it – it controls you, because nothing stronger has defeated it, and replaced it. God can set you free. Will He? Of course. If you ask, and believe, and choose the grace to say no to what once bound you. He sets you free from sin! You can sin again, but you don’t have to. Once you receive Jesus as your Savior (saved from sin), and your LORD (His grace so you don’t go back), and His Spirit – (to lead you in a better way, the path He has for you), you can be free for life. What once controlled you, no longer controls you. You’ve under new management, you’ve got a new Master, and His yoke is easy, and his burden is light. Freedom has two parts. God’s part and your part. God sets you free through His Son dying in your place. You receive it by faith in Jesus, and by walking in the Spirit, and choosing the grace to say no to what once controlled you – That grace is now available to you always! Galatians 5:1 – It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Sin’s yoke is heavy. But Jesus said, my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Praying that you will walk in the freedom that Jesus died for - today. You have been set free! Don’t go back to slavery. Use your faith to walk in freedom. And even that is not of yourself, it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast. The faith you can use to walk in the Freedom Jesus purchased for you, didn’t even come from you… God gave it to you! As He has given every man a measure of faith…. The more you exercise it, the stronger it grows. There’s nothing like being free. Jesus is the Word, and His Word will set you free. To walk in freedom, Receive Jesus, Receive the Holy Spirit, Choose the grace to say no – to any other yoke that tries to get you back. You don’t have to. God set you free! Then, stay in His Word – it will build your faith, and keep you free. Faith and Freedom go together, walk in one, and you’ll walk in other. Put your faith in Jesus. Praise Him for the freedom that He gives. You’ve been set free! Romans 8:32 – He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things? They say the best things in life are free. They cost Jesus a lot, but they are free to you. The only cost to you, is your faith in Him, and a life devoted to him. If you do, you’ll always be free, for the rest of your life, and for eternity after that! He whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Freedom is what God has for you!
