“But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean, ‘You will be set free’?” Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin,” (Holy Bible, John 8:33-34, New Living Translation). I was born in the United States of America, the land of freedom. When the red, white and blue flag unfurls, it’s my assurance that freedom belongs to me. Like these descendents of Abraham who questioned Jesus, I’ve never been a slave or endured servant, but tentacles of sin enslaved me until I claimed my inheritance through faith in Jesus Christ. He set me free.
prayer: Lord Jesus, I am no longer enslaved by sin because You set me free. Amen.
