Luke: 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

1 Peter 2:16-17 “Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.  Honor everyone.  Love the brotherhood.  Fear God.  Honor the emperor.”

2 Corinthians 1:8-10 “For we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia.  For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself.  Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death.  But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead.  He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and He will deliver us.  On Him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.”

Hebrews 2:14-15 “Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death He might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”

Conclusion

Freedom in Christ is true freedom.  Until you understand and accept Him as Lord and Savior, you will stay in bondage to sin, shackled up by many chains.  Give your heart to Jesus today and shake off those chains, if you have not already.  We are not promised tomorrow, so do not delay!  Start your journey of freedom with Jesus Christ!  For those that are free, stay strong and finish the race well!  God bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling!
