Word Of The Month
John 8:31-32, 36
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.Have you ever felt like the world around you was pressing in on you and there was no escape? Have you had things in your life that you just couldn't seem to shake off, even though you knew that they were tearing you down? You're not alone.
We were all born into bondage. We were born into sin. And, it is that sin that has made us slaves. Our enemy, the Devil, wants to keep us as his servants – in bondage. But, God has given us a way out.
When Jesus died on the cross, he paid the price so that we could be set free from the bondage of sin. If we will hold fast to that truth, then we will be truly free. And if Jesus makes you free, then there is nothing your former master, that old devil, can do about it.
One thing He asks of us, though. Live in that freedom. Don't go back into the bondage that you were saved from. Be the child of God that you can be, not the child of hell that you were. Jesus paid the price. Don't let that sacrifice go to waste.
