Daily Devotion - You can be Free!!

Hi yall, I've been really inspired by DPrincess28 to start posting short daily devotions on my blog. She always drops some beautifully Holy Spirit inspired words, which always give me food for thought. Instead of focusing on a scripture though, I'd like to focus on a thought. I hope you're inspired and ministered to by these. Here's the 1st one!!
You Can Be Free

JOHN 8:31-32 NRSV
31 Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If youcontinue in my word, you are truly my disciples;32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make youfree."

Everyone wants to be free, but many have given up hope that it is possible.
But Jesus gave a promise, valid for you today. You can be free!

Many suffer from physical problems. Jesus' promise includesyou!

Some are bound by debt. The promise of Jesus applies to you,also!

Others are bound by fear. You can be free!

Many are bound by destructive habits they are unable to quit. Sin enslaves people, but you can be free from its power!

34 Jesus answered them, "Very truly, I tell you, everyone whocommits sin is a slave to sin."

Jesus will set you free from the power of sin. He will not takeaway your freedom to sin, but He will change you inwardly, so you don't want to sin.

Real freedom is more than being able to do what you want to do. Real freedom is not having to do what you do not want to do.

36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.

Free indeed!

The answers are in the Word of God: the New Testament.

Be blessed!!
