It was a beautiful time of day to stand on the dock at the lake.
Flowers were in bloom along the water’s edge.
The birds flew quickly past in front of me.
They were free.
They could go anywhere their wings might take them.
Free to soar.
Free to glide almost effortlessly in the space God created for them.
We can be spiritually free.
God has created that reality for us.
Are you living in that freedom today?
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
