Let Christ’s Freedom Ring

 

 

The Gospel is about freedom—being freed from sin and every kind of bondage. That’s why, early in His ministry, Jesus quoted Isaiah’s Old Testament prophecy that He had been sent to “set free the captives free” (Luke 4:18). Jesus clearly said this freedom begins with our relationship with Him. Many quote Jesus as saying, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” But we can forget that there was a condition to this freedom. Jesus said only if you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples, then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”  (John 8:31-32).
 
 
The Old Testament stressed this same principle. The Psalmist wrote he could walk in freedom because he had “devoted himself to God’s commandments,” basing his life on God’s Word. Some people think freedom means doing whatever they want. But the Bible reminds us to remember that freedom begins with a loving, obedient relationship with God. God is our Creator, and God knows us better than we know ourselves. God desires to bless us physically, financially, and spiritually. God wants to enrich our lives in every way and free us from all fears and worries. We only experience real freedom after we make Jesus our Lord, devote ourselves to God’s Word, and are filled with the Holy Spirit, allowing the Spirit of God to direct our lives.
 
 
As we are thankful and celebrate America’s freedom on July 4th, please remember that only through Jesus Christ are we truly set free. We don’t have to be enslaved by sin or bad habits, worry or fear. Since the beginning of creation, God’s plan has always been to give us real freedom, real victory, and real peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let His freedom ring loudly in your life!!
