fireworks - Nehemiah E-Community

Our pastor just returned from a mission trip to Cuba rejoicing in our freedom as US citizens.  But, he also said it made him sad…as he sensed that many Christians in our country live in “external freedom” but actually have less “internal freedom” than those he worshiped with him in the communist country of Cuba!

John 8:32 says, “and you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free”.

But, are you living in that kind of freedom?  Or are you still living a life that has you imprisoned behind the walls of your past…present…even your future?   Are you…

IMPRISONED BY YOUR PAST –  guilt, shame, resentment and condemnation?

IMPRINSONED BY YOUR PRESENT REALITY – financial fears, marriage and family struggles, health issues?

IMPRISONED BY YOUR FUTURE? – no hope, no purpose, no clarity, no power?

It doesn’t have to be like that!

Once you surrender your life to Christ, you are a new creation and the debt of your sin…the mistakes of your past…they are all canceled and done away with!   You just need to let your beliefs catch up with that new reality…the reality of your freedom!

So the question is this…have you encountered that kind of Truth?

Truth is  a person and His name is Jesus!

If you haven’t met him yet…I would love to introduce you.  If you already know Him…isn’t it time to break out of prison and live free to be all that God has created you to be?

“I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord! Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans for hope and a future!” Jeremiah 29:11

Why not make this 4th of July the day that you celebrate not just your external freedom but your internal freedom as well!

Let’s make this a day of real celebration.

What is it you need to do to live in FREEDOM?

As for me…it is believing and fully receiving the gift Christ died for me to have…a clean slate and a God-sized ‘do over’ for my life.  Thank you Jesus!
