PRAYER: Please take a moment and pray for this week. We are breaking new ground down here in Florida and am asking that God be in the middle of it all and that folks here, hear the message and react and respond. Thanks.
DEVOTION: “For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.” – 1 Timothy 2:5-6
Our lives. Think about yours for a minute. It’s busy, it’s hopeful sometimes, heavy and confusing at others. Sometimes direction seems lost, sometimes it’s focused and clear. There are days that drag and days that fly by faster than you can see them….it’s life. We live it and it fascinates sometimes and frustrates others.
When Jesus came to this Earth, his life was different. There was purpose, there was clarity, there was direction and intent. He was not stumbling over where to go and what to do. He knew the end game. His life’s purpose was to live to die. Live so that we might have life. Die so that we wouldn’t have to. His death meant freedom for you and me.
Freedom from it all. The shame, the hurt, the pain. All of it. Today. You have freedom. Live a life of freedom because of Jesus and the sacrifice he made for us. Amen.
