Pin It


My family and I were watching one of those shows where they nurse an animal to health and then release it back into the wild. As we watched, the animal hesitated the moment they let it go, as if it wasn't quite sure it was really free.
This is a perfect picture of how some Christians act, even though Jesus has purchased our freedom on the cross.  John 8:36 says "So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed."  It's a promise from God that if you'll receive His freedom, it's there for the taking!

However, you have to "walk" in that freedom, just like the animal released back into the wild had to walk away and go back to where it belonged.

Jesus set us free from sin, the curse of the law, condemnation, and a life of striving. If we're still in bondage in any area, it's not because freedom isn't available, it's because we haven't allowed God to be the Lord of that particular part of our lives.
