So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

—John 8:36

Freedom is the greatest of gifts, and it’s one that comes with a heavy price.

But freedom doesn’t mean we do what we want; it means we are gifted with an opportunity to live above ourselves. For truly, there is no greater slave driver than self-indulgence.

Christ’s freedom liberates us from guilt, shame and the desires that drove us to self-destructive habits. We are now empowered to serve others as He served, to deny our own wants so that others can be blessed.

That is the true power of freedom.

What a blessing!

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
1The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Exodus 14:13-14

What an amazing experience it must have been for the millions of former slaves to see God’s power deliver them from their oppressors. But the best news is that, for the child of God today, His power is still ready to work in our lives.

Whether we’re struggling against an addiction, emotional turmoil or health issues, it’s important for the Christian to remember that God is on our side. No matter the chaos that surrounds you, remember that He’s the greatest warrior ever.

Stand firm upon His words of promise, believe, and watch Him do amazing things.

Have a blessed weekend!

“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

—Jesus Christ

The impact of a single life that is fully devoted to God cannot be overstated. When believers become Christ-focused instead of church or self-focused, that’s when we’re able to make God real to others.

Christ showed us the power of surrender when He said these words that will resound throughout eternity. “Not my will…” How many of us can freely echo those words each day of our life? Is our time at God’s disposal? Do our talents belong to Him alone?

Christ’s example challenges us to rise above ourselves and mold our nature to His own. Like Christ, we are in this world to display the glory of God. It’s not about us; it’s about HIM. Without that “death” to ourselves, there can be no “resurrection” of Christ’s life in us.

Submitting to the will of God is not easy—as Jesus also showed us when His sweat became like blood. Confessing our wrongs, forgiving others or resisting popular opinion to stand with God’s Word is never easy, is it?

I’ll be honest and say it’s not.

But it’s what Christ’s Church was born to do.

As we approach Good Friday, let us not only consider what surrender cost the Son of God but let us also ask ourselves if we are willing to surrender our will to our Heavenly Father every day.

When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.

—King David

Last night I led a married men’s Bible study group in my home. Our focus point was how we as men can conquer fear. One of the brothers connected a Scripture on fear to his brother-in-law who’s battling Stage 4 liver and colon cancer.

The doctors have given him a limited time but, in spite of this, Joel is positive and full of faith, trusting that God will bring him through.

Sometimes as Christians we feel that we should never experience fear. But the truth is, fear strikes at all of us.

The Christian is not immune from fear, but he is greater than fear.

David—this same man that brought down Goliath—didn’t hesitate to admit that fear affected him at times. But, by turning his eyes from the situation to the Lord who had previously given him victory, he was able to find joy and consolation despite the circumstance.

We show the power of our faith by rising above the situation, confident that the God who rescued us from hell is more than able to deliver us from anything life throws our way… including cancer.

That is power.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

-Jesus Christ

Rest has been a key part of God’s plan. In Genesis, God rested. In Exodus, He told the Jewish people to observe the 7th day as Sabbath (rest). But His plan went still further as He unveiled a spiritual “rest” through the Holy Spirit that was incarnated in Jesus Christ.

Spirit-filled Christians don’t need to fear the terror, political confusion and religious noise that seems to get louder each day. We don’t need to fear the power of sin or worry about whether we’ll go to heaven or not when this life is over.

Our lives are in the hands of a perfect, omnipotent God and, no matter what each day brings, we are at rest, knowing that He is STILL in control.

I love that!
