Be Free

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

–John 8:36

 

While walking on the beach, I noticed a some kites near the late afternoon sun.

I paused for a moment to take some photographs.

Kites are a magnificently simple mix of light wood, plastic or paper.

They take to the skies with the proper wind to lift them high into the atmosphere.

Flowing gracefully, it’s easy to compare them to being carefree.

Kites aren’t really free, though.

They’re tethered to the ground by a string.

Someone is still in control.

There is freedom to be found in that control, however.

We are free in Christ.

Free from so many burdens and free from the penalty of sin.

Someone is still in control.

We are tethered to the heart of God by our faith in Jesus.

With our lives being redeemed, we are now free to live forgiven lives, guided by God’s love.

Are you free?
