“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” John 8:36
Freedom. How we love that word! Many seek after it, giving up much to attain it. Others destroy themselves with drugs and alcohol to experience it. But, true freedom can only be found in Jesus Christ. Every person who places his or her faith in Jesus is set free—liberated to live the abundant life.
Jesus sets us free from the bondage of sin, the prison of fear, the oppression of our past mistakes, the burden of becoming the negative things that people said we would be.
Today, be AWAKENED to this: In Jesus Christ you are free! If the Son makes you free, you are free indeed—in other words, you are truly, really and un-apologetically free.
Christ has paid the price for your freedom, and it was a hefty cost– it cost Him His life. This is a debt we will never be able to repay, and guess what, He doesn’t ask us to. God wants us to live a purpose-driven, love-filled, God-glorifying life. A life which is filled with love, service, service, and excitement too.
You are free! Free to become all that you were born to be. Find out why you are here on this earth and max it out. Submit to the process to draw the greatness out you. Embrace the life that you were given and appreciate what Christ has done for you and make every moment count!
Go ahead, live! You are free! It is Freedom!
