Someone Sacificed Something For Your Freedom

Aug 27, 2022

Freedom is a word we hear a lot. Financial freedom, freedom from oppression, land of the free. People want to be free from fear, or depression. Everybody wants to be free, but not a lot of people understand the sacrifice it takes to be free!

Imagine a puppet being controlled by someone it does exactly what they tell it to. A lot of people are controlled by their friends so they say things or do things that are wrong to fit in. Maybe fight or cuss because your friends think it's cool. Some people are controlled by money so they worry all the time about it, or do illegal things to get it. Some people just spend everyday sad or mad because their emotions control them.

Jesus came to set us free from sin, and worry, and depression. Just like he set the israelites free he wants to set you free! There is hope! Jesus did the heavy lifting. He died on the cross so we could be free. All Jesus asks is for you to decide to live for him, and confess that he is Lord. If you read the bible and learn his word you will know what is right. There is hope because just like our bible verse says "you will be free indeed"!

Our Memory Verse this week is:
“If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
