Easter is fast approaching! The choir is starting tonight, to practice for the Easter Cantata. The very first song is called I AM Free. It talks about how through Christ's love for us and our acceptance of all he has done for us, we are free to do anything; dance, run, even live for him. In this country people say nothing is free. Well to show your faith and to show your love is free, if you let it be.
Freedom is part of our every day lives and most of us take it for granted. We run around, during our daily living, spouting off that we love God, that we go to church and that God loves everybody. We know that we can do this freely and that most of the time, people will not bother us about it. But how about the people who feel trapped and in despair. Are we really living our lives that show we are free? That if we trust God and through him we can feel free. We can be joyful and in doing what he wants us to do, we are able to freely offer to others what God has offered to us through Jesus. The free gift of eternal life. So, are you free?
Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
