Freedom

Gal 1:4-5 who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Herein lies the greatest demonstration of Gods love and grace. Jesus willingly offered Himself for our sin, so that we could be delivered from this present age.  The word deliver means to pluck out, or to rescue. We were in bondage to sin. We were trapped with no way to free ourselves. But Jesus came on a divine rescue mission and delivered us. The message of the gospel is an emancipation proclamation that frees us from slavery to sin. God doesn’t want to burden you He wants to radically bless you. The bible says in Isaiah 58:6 To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?

We are saved by Gods grace through faith in Him. Salvation is not of ourselves. We can’t boast about what we did to earn salvation, all the glory, praise and honor belong to our God. Perhaps you are in bondage to sin and you don't know how to get out. I have great news for you, Jesus can deliver you. Turn to Him today and be free. 

Jesus said, "you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" John 8:32 "Therefore if the Son makes you free then you shall be free indeed." John 8:36
