You Are Free Indeed

Last Tuesday I had the privilege of speaking to a group of women at Cornerstone Church.
I shared with them the freedom that Jesus came to give us.

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."  Luke 4:18,19

Jesus would not have come to preach this message if it were not something that we needed to hear.
He would not have endured the agony and torture of the cross if there weren't chains that only his death and resurrection could break.
There are many things that try to bind us in this life. 
Things that try to tie us up and hold us captive, keep us small and ineffective.
Past mistakes
Wrongs done to us
The list in inexhaustible of the things the enemy uses to chain us to a lie for the rest of our life.

But Jesus came to set us FREE!
We are promised trouble in this world as it is broken and sinful.
But Jesus overcame the world and with that he has set us free from all of the trouble that this world hurls at us.
We need only to lay down our chains and receive his freedom.
"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36

His death on the cross really was enough to break any chain.
You name it - nothing is too difficult for him!

 Do you need freedom today?
