Freedom from bondage and fear

All men are captives, they are slaves to something even though they might think that they are free men. People live in fear of death, insecurities, anxiety, addictions… People are concerned about what other people think about them, peer pressure. What are other people going to say?

Jesus Christ came to set us free and those whom the Son of God have set free, they will be free and free indeed. But there is a condition to the freedom that Jesus gives us and that is THAT WE SERVE HIM AS LORD, we deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Jesus Christ every day. If we accept Jesus Christ as LORD then we do not care what other people think about us, any more. We do not worry about the things of the world. We do not worry about tomorrow or about our security, our safety, what we will eat, what we will drink, our future, because Jesus said:”Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you,” but that is the condition, that we must first seek the righteousness of Jesus Christ, His standard of righteousness. We must live in OBEDIENCE to Him and we must SERVE Him as KING. If we serve Jesus as Lord then we TRUST Him, that He guides our footsteps and nothing can happen to us that is not approved or allowed by Him. Jesus Christ determines our life IF we obey Him and if we live to please Him. And then He sets us absolutely free, we have nothing else to fear, whatsoever.

People don’t want to be free, they prefer bondage because they trust in their own understanding and they want things THEIR WAY. They are not willing to pray from their heart:”Thy will be done, Thy kingdom come…” If we truly trust Jesus then we will pray the Lord’s prayer with conviction, from the heart and say:”Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven…” Then we will satisfy ourselves in the assurance that GOD IS IN CONTROL and we trust Him with our life, WE HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT!

Have you been set free? Are you seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness?

May Jesus bless you.
