Hope everybody had an awesome Easter!!! Such an awesome day filled with the Good News that our Savior has RISEN!! HE IS ALIVE!!! And in His resurrection came victory and FREEDOM for us!!! Heard some awesome news from my uncle today that during his time ministering with some other guys sharing God’s truth with men in prison, in his words;
“Angels rejoiced over the jail this morning….an inmate wept and cried, then called upon the name of the Lord . He prayed and received Christ…..Glory!!!”
How awesome is that!!! I can’t imagine how many men and women heard the Good News of Jesus Christ today and how many of them accepted Jesus as their Savior! This man may still be an inmate in prison, locked up. But in this NEW LIFE he now has with Jesus, he is FREE!! Despite the prison bars that surround him, he can rest in peace knowing that the victory has been won and his home is now with Jesus for eternity! This day of Easter is a special holiday where we celebrate Christ rising from the grave and giving us freedom to walk in daily and forever! The good thing about this GOOD NEWS is we don’t get to be free just for today or celebrate what Christ has done today, we get to celebrate Jesus and the freedom and victory He has died and rose again to give us EVERY DAY!!!! As we begin our weeks, I pray we don’t forget this FREEDOM we have in Christ! Even though jobs, crazy busy schedules and work to do may seem like a burden, burdens that make us feel like we too are locked up in chains. But just continually remind yourself of the FREEDOM in these verses, the complete FREEDOM that you have in Christ Jesus!!! Nothing or nobody can hold you back, nothing of this world is too great for Jesus to handle!!! All the sins and worries of yesterday are washed away by the blood of Christ and like He rose from the grave, shall we continue to rise out of our beds daily to walk in and live life in this glorious FREEDOM we have with Jesus!!! Focus today on Jesus and what He has done instead of all the negative around you or the worries of today’s tasks. Focusing and believing on the FREEDOM you have will have you walking as a FREE child of God!!! Stay close to Him and take a look around at God’s reminders of who He is and how in control, how beautiful and loving He is by His creation which He makes known all across this earth and our lives!!! Enjoy the FREEDOM today, the next day, the next day, the next day………EVERY DAY!!!!! Thank God for sending His Son and setting us FREE!!!
