Is anyone free today?


“Therefore if the Son makes you free you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36 NKJV)

Most people in our modern society are not slaves in the technical sense. But many people in our society are in slavery in a very spiritual sense. We have people who are in bondage to drugs, to alcohol, to sex, to power and a plethora of other things that take control of their life. There are people that are in bondage to seemingly harmless things, but have consumed their lives. Maybe that is computer use, or television or your job. Things that are not inherently bad, but anything that takes our focus off God is something that needs to be put under God’s control.

It is the ‘big sins’ and the ‘little sins’ that Jesus came to set us free from. Maybe you think you are O.K. right now, but I can assure you that there are things that Jesus needs to take control of. How is your prayer life? How is your Bible reading? How is your church attendance? So these things get pushed aside because you have other things to do? Busyness is a yeast that will spoil our lives and we need to prioritize things. Make our relationship with Him and His bride our number one priority. Everything else will fall into it’s rightful place.
