Good Morning All!!!
I hope you are having an absolutely awesome day so far! So after I got up and prayed I went to Biblegateway.com to see what the scripture of the day is. so today's scripture is John 8:31-32. Now, I do not like to just look at the scripture and run with it, I always want to see it in context. See what was going on, why it was said, and who it was talking bout. Biblegateway gives you the option of seeing the scripture in context. So today's scripture in context is actually John 8:30-33 which says ...
John 8:30-33 (New International Version)
30 Even as he spoke, many believed in him.
31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
33 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?”
What I liked about today's scripture is that it made me think about today's society. I can see people in today's society saying "we have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?"
Unfortunately today's society is so busy doing their own thing, Living For Themselves, Living Out Loud, YOLO (You Only Live Once)! But, a lot of people are slaves. Slaves to SOCIETY, Slaves to the MEDIA, Slaves to SELFISHNESS, Slaves to the SYSTEM, Slaves to THEMSELVES, Slaves to SOCIAL NETWORKING, Slaves to RELIGION, Slaves to TRADITION, and other things. It is like half of society is sleep and the other half are slaves! People are so bound by EVERYTHING that they can not really live a productive life. People's minds are so bound it is sad and scary. People need to CHANGE! Change takes place in the mind before they ever act it out. People are shackled and they are living a life that is limited by their own minds. I think the worst ones are the people who are bound captives but DO NOT KNOW IT! YOU NEED TO BE SET FREE!
There is only one way to be TOTALLY, and ABSOLUTELY SET FREE, free in your mind and free in this life and that is through these three steps.
Step 1 - ACCEPTANCE of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Step 2 - Have FAITH in that acceptance.
Step 3 - Live the Life God has DESTINED or ORDAINED for you to live.
So lesson for today... The words of the bible are true! They were true back then and they are true TODAY!
Jesus Sets The Captives Free!!
