Can a man ever be free, if his soul is in chains?
Jesus once put it this way, ‘What does it benefit a man to gain the whole world, and yet forfeit his soul?’ (Mark 8:36)
How can I truly be free? How can I be liberated from the inside out, from the very depths of my soul?
My friend, according to Jesus we need to first be rescued from the scars and condemnations of sin. We need God to pour out healing and forgiveness on the wounds of our heart, and then set our feet on a true path of life – eternal life. Do you want the ‘new heart and new spirit’ that Jesus offers you? (Ez 36:26) Do you want a completely new start where your sins have been forgiven, and healing power pours over the hurts done to you? Do you want to go through a door of ‘new life’, and have not just earthly, but heavenly freedom coursing through your veins? Read these 2 verses carefully, and consider closing your eyes and praying to Jesus, to receive what he offers you here:
‘Jesus said, ‘I am the door, and anyone who goes through me will be saved, and they will go in and come out and find pasture.’ (John 10:9)
‘Jesus said, ‘If anyone believes in me… streams of living water will flow from within them.’ (John 7:38)
