“To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are Abrahamʼs descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.”
John 8:31-35 NIV
It sounds so peaceful, tranquil, complete. Are you truly free? Many people are slaves to their jobs, their daily routines, or their lifestyles. Much our society are slaves to debt, bad relationship, or illness. Our sinfulness with drugs, sex, and alcohol trap us deep into slavery.
Our freedom is won on the battlefield. In our country countless soldiers have died for our freedom and eternally Jesus has also given of himself to save us, to set us free. Both sacrifices are genuine and are treasured by me. Jesus sacrifice guides me everyday. I am no longer a slave to anything because of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Do you want to be free? Do you want to feel the peace and tranquillity that you feel with freedom from the burdens of life. Jesus is that answer. Ask him to take over your life. Ask him to forgive you of your sins! Confess that he is Lord. Do it today!
