Free Indeed

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
— John 8:36

No freedom like that in Christ. 

The Word of God promises that when the Son has set us free we are free indeed. 

A freedom that goes deeply through the soul. A freedom of spirit that the world cannot offer. 

The Lord taught His disciples to be not hearers of His words but doers also. To heed the commandments. Through Jesus and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we can receive true freedom. 

Jesus is the One with the right to truly liberate us all through His perfect life and sacrifice. 

We receive the spirit of adoption and freedom through Him. Slaves no more under the bondage of the world. 

 "Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." Galatians 4:3-7


To Ponder:

Am I embracing my freedom in Christ?


Prayer:

Heavenly Father, 

I am so thankful that through Your Son I am an heir of salvation and part of your family. Thank You. Teach me to represent You, and our family, with love and mercy. 

In Jesus name, amen.
