Today’s Promise

I Am Free

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. – John 8:26


Jesus set you free. And if Jesus set you free, how could you ever walk in bondage again?

Jesus set you free in at least three different ways.

Jesus Set You Free from your sin

When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the debt for your sin and broke the power of sin over you. You used to be a slave to your sin. When sin called, you always came running. Sin promised freedom, but it only delivered bondage, chains, and slavery. Jesus set you free from sin. You don’t have to accept defeat any longer. How can you walk in bondage to sin, when Christ has set you free indeed.

Jesus Set You Free from your past

We all have a past. We all have regrets and shame from our past. So many people carry shame and guilt from their past like a 100 lb weight on their shoulder. Their past is always holding them back. In Christ, you’re a new person. Your past is in the past, Jesus set you free from your guilt and shame. The chains of your past life have been broken, and you are free to walk in fellowship with God every day of your life.

Free to be All God calls you to be

Like a loving father, God has wonderful plans for you. Christ set you free to be the person God calls you to be. You are no longer held back by the chains that once kept you down. You are free! Free to walk in friendship with the living God. You are free to do His will, obey everything He commands you, and to be the person God made you to be.

 

Let’s review that verse one more time,

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. – John 8:26

 

Confess this with me,

In Jesus Christ I am free.
I am no longer a slave to my sin.
I have freedom from my guilt and shame.
I have freedom to walk in fellowship with God every day.
I will never allow the chains of my past or the guilt and shame of my former life
to hold me back from being all God has called me to be.
Since Jesus has set me free, I will never walk in bondage again.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
