"Healthy, Overcomers, Purposed with an Eternal Perspective"
 
John 8:31-35 - NKJV (Biblegateway.com)
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”
Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.


This morning as I went into my prayer room a song by Eddie James started to play in my heart. The song is titled "Free to  Run." As I knelt to pray, I began to sing this song. I then felt the peace of God in my heart for what He has called me to do. I could hear the Lord whisper verse 36 of John 8, "Who the Son sets free is free indeed." Then I heard, "Don't be bound by the opinions of man as you go forward." "Whom I have loosed, no one can bound again!"

​ In the scriptures cited above, Jesus was ministering to the Jews; he was trying to help them to understand that they weren't free because of their lineage. He was revealing to them their spiritual condition. When we come to Christ and we allow Him to cleanse us of our sin, we then have a freedom because the Spirit of God now lives in us.

God has called us to do great works in this earth! Often times as believers, we are walking around still bound. We are no longer bound by sin but by the opinions of others and our own fears. We know in our hearts that we are called by God but we often allow these things  to overshadow that call on our lives! We have to remember to seek to please God and to walk out our salvation and purpose in the freedom of Christ our Lord!

Therefore, let us be reminded that He called us and we didn't call ourselves! Let us run-on in Him, walk in His will, and simply pray for others to do the same. Our identity is found in Him! For only in Him do we live, move, and have our being! In Matthew 28:20, Jesus said, "and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” So we are not to fear, but walk in His strength and power! Let us be free to live for Him and hold fast to His promises! We are free indeed!
