WE HAVE BEEN SET FREE
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
John 8:36 KJV
Pastor Haldor Lillenas wrote one of my favorite hymns “Glorious Freedom”. I love these words. “Once I was bound by sin’s galling fetters; Chained like a slave, I struggled in vain. But I received a glorious freedom, When Jesus broke my fetters in twain.” Thank God for the redeeming blood of Jesus!
Every time I remember how Jesus came to me when I was lying under a bed in a mental hospital afraid of everyone and hating everybody with no desire to live and lifted me up from under that bed, my heart overflows with love for my precious Saviour. I have a lot of good friends but my best Friend is Jesus.
One of my pastors said in a sermon “If you want to fly higher than a kite, start bragging on Jesus”. I have had the privilege of serving Jesus full time since January 24, 2005 and since that date I really have been flying higher than a kite. Of course, satan does his best to discourage me but he will never win.
Heavenly Father, You are a compassionate loving Father. Thank You for allowing me to serve Your Son. Precious Jesus, how I love You! One day I will see You face to face. I’m going to give You the biggest hug You have ever had. How I long for that day. Thank You for dying for me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
