If the Son Sets You Free

The swallow-tailed kite soared above me.

These birds travel from North America to South America for the winter and then back again.

They are free.

Free to go where they want to go and where they need to go.

God has given them this freedom and the desire to make the journey each year.

With Jesus, we can have freedom, too.

Spiritual freedom.

Freedom to live the life that God wants for us.

An abundant life.

A life no longer in slavery to sin.

Are you free today?

*

So Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him, “If you live by what I say, you are truly my disciples.  You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

 They replied to Jesus, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and we’ve never been anyone’s slaves. So how can you say that we will be set free?”

 Jesus answered them, “I can guarantee this truth: Whoever lives a sinful life is a slave to sin.  A slave doesn’t live in the home forever, but a son does.  So if the Son sets you free, you will be absolutely free.

—John 8:31-36
