Message of the Day: We Find True Freedom In Jesus!
“So if the Son sets you free, you really will be free.” (John 8:36, NASB)
Jesus used an illustration from slavery to show the people how he could help them in their need. They all knew that slaves could not free themselves. The only person who could free them was the owner of the house in which the slave worked, or the owner’s son, acting on his father’s authority. The Jews were slaves, in bondage to sin and unable to free themselves. The only one who could free them was God, acting through his Son Jesus. They would find their true freedom through faith in Jesus and continual obedience to his teachings. Again the Jews did not understand the spiritual truth Jesus was illustrating. Thinking only of ordinary earthly life, they argued that they had never been slaves of any nation. They had the freedom of sons, Abraham’s sons. (John 8:31-36)
Jesus has the right and power to liberate us from the bondage and dominion of sin. If we have him, we are indeed free! We are blessed with the most valuable freedom; not from the chains and oppressions of earthly masters but from the bondage of sin.
