As we get ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, I cannot help but think about the freedom that we have as followers of Christ.
We are no longer slaves to sin. We know peace, love, patience, forgiveness, kindness, mercy and so much more.
“For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.” Romans 6:20
That emptiness that I felt is no longer present because I have Jesus in my heart. He fills that void, that for so long I tried to fill with shopping trips (expensive ones, may I add!), people, jobs, etc.
“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?: Psalm 42:1-2
Now, I have an identity. I have Jesus. I am free in Christ.
“Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Acts 13:38-39
Do you long to fill that void in your heart? Want to be free today? It’s up to you to take that step toward freedom.
It’s simple. Ask Jesus into your heart.
Pray the following:
“Heavenly Father, I come to you at this time to ask for forgiveness of my sins (Luke 24:47). I recognize that I am a sinner (Romans 3:9) and I believe that you sent your only Son(Luke 3:22), Jesus, to die for my sins (Galatians 2:20). I believe that He was crucified and resurrected (Matthew 28:1-10) so that I can have eternal life (John 17:3). Today, I accept you as Lord and Savior, and I humbly ask that you write my name in the Book of Life (Revelation 3:5).”
If you recommitted your life to Christ or accepted Him as Saviour for the first time, please send me a quick note. I’d love to pray for you.
God bless you,
