I know I haven’t posted on here in ages. I did do some posting over here on another blog I started.
Christmas is just over. Most of us have unwrapped all the presents we are getting, had meals with family, caroled and gone to church and finished all the events relating to Christmas.
But there is a part of Christmas that won’t go away, not the whole year long; it won’t ever get old, even though it’s been thousands of years.
It’s the message of Christmas : here is your Messiah.
Here is our Savior, our Lord, our God. Here is our freedom.
We are all from different places in life; different relationships, different backgrounds, different lifestyles, different ages and different problems.
But one thing we have in common is this : we are all in bondage.
We are enslaved in many ways : insecure about ourselves, fear of missing out in life, anger over something we can’t control, pain in a relationship where we can’t seem to get along, and the list goes on; even the people who seem to “have it all together” have a burden of something.
But the wonderful news? Jesus came to set us free from all of that!
We don’t have to worry about whether anyone else likes us, because God loves us just the way we are.
We don’t have to worry about missing out in life, because God is guiding us, and His way is always full of purpose and meaning.
We can let go of the anger, because God is still in control and He knows what He’s doing far better than us.
We can embrace (yes, embrace) the pain, because somehow or other God will help us to get through the tough times.
We don’t have to be scared of death, because Jesus conquered over it.
Everything we’re going through is just a season. It won’t last forever.
And if we choose to let go our grip on whatever’s crippling us and give it to Jesus, He will break the chains that bind it to us.
It doesn’t mean that the pain will immediately go away. But we don’t have to worry about it.
We are free!
And we are also free from all the guilt that comes with those problems.
We don’t have to feel bad that we’re so insecure about ourselves.
We can just let it go.
I can’t really do justice to this revelation I had. All I know is that there is freedom in Christ.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
