Really Free

And you will will know the truth and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

We greatly appreciated the chance to see the Statue of liberty for the first time last week. It not only is an amazing place so intertwined with our history in America it has an equally important story. 

It was touching to realize that people from not only France but from around the world gave donations to help bring the Statue to New York harbor. Freedom is a hope and longing for us all. At the exit from the museum there was a plaque listing sayings about freedom. Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, and many others I didn’t recognize were each quoted. Most of the ideas seemed good and appropriate but I so wished to see something from the greatest liberator of all time, Jesus Christ. Everyone else seems to be given their honor except Him. 

But 2000 years ago it was no different. Everyone else was honored while Jesus was crucified. But He died neither angry nor heartbroken. He breathed His last finished His work and purchased true freedom for anyone who will trust Him with their heart! What are you going to do with the precious gift of real freedom He offers you today?

No Tresspassing

…“Don’t touch this,” “Don’t taste that” and “Don’t handle the other”? “This”, “that” and “the other” will all pass away after use! I know that these regulations look wise with their self-inspired efforts at worship, their policy of self-humbling, and their studied neglect of the body. But in actual practice they do honour, not to God, but to man’s own pride. Colossians 2:23 (Phillips Ver)

Neither the split rail fence nor the no trespassing sign ever kept people out who wanted in. In the same way, the law with its rules and regulations, can never truly govern the soul of man. Eve will always taste the fruit, AdamKIMG0573[1] will always disobey God. Only the power of the Holy Spirit in our life will break the cycle of sin and set us free to unlimited freedom found only in Jesus Christ!
