“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
What does it mean to be “free”? Looking up in various dictionaries the definitions are basically the same.
Free is to be able to act, speak, or think as one wants. It is a state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.
Being free is such a wonderful gift. Freedom is a priceless and very precious possession.
In today’s society we hear about freedom nearly every day. Freedom of human rights, of religion, of choice…, but if we sit down and think for a while we comedown with this question: What is real freedom and do we have it? Could we be enslaved in something thinking or believing we are free but in reality we are not?The above passage in John says it clearly ” He who the Son sets free is free indeed”
The enemy will try to make people think and believe they are free when in fact they are bound, they are slaves in different situations in their life. We see this everyday around us. If only we would take a few moments each day to look deep within us and examine our selves.
We are all slaves to sin. We tend to think that a sin has to be something serious, big like murder, adultery, etc but even a so-called “small/white lie” is a sin.
” for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23
Not one of us can say that we have never sinned or never sin, this would be a lie = sin
How many of us put so many other things before God? I know I do quite a few times. Do I have other gods in my life? Yes I do… One of them is food, another is smoking….Anything we turn to, run to, put before God is a false god.
Jesus set us free when He died and rose again….
In John 8:32 we read “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
What is this truth or should I say Who is this truth?
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” John 14:6
Jesus is the truth. When we know Him who is the truth, who is the Son then we are FREE INDEED!!!
I don’t need to turn to anyone or anything for my needs. He is Sufficient for me. He is all I need.
Come to the truth- Come to the Son- let go of yourself and surrender your all to Him and BE SET FREE!
Blessings to you all,
Do you have any false gods in your life? Do you put other things, people, circumstances before God? Do you know the one who is the Truth that sets you free?
