Jesus declares, “So if the Son frees you, then you will truly be free” (Jn. 8:36). Do we truly believe these words? When our Lord tells us that we are forgiven and healed, do we then celebrate our freedom? We either ‘sink’ in the sadness of feeling trapped in our sins, or we ‘swim’ in the joyful reality of being redeemed. Today, dare to believe.
Lord Jesus, Your dynamic power frees us from anything that threatens to enslave us. May we use our freedom to celebrate Your goodness and bring Your joy to the world. Amen.
