Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/29/14

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

The Lord gives freedom…   (Psalm 146:7)

Jesus Christ risenIt is the Lord’s intent that we be free. He sets at liberty the captives and breaks the chains of the prisoners held in bondage. We have one Lord and One God, yet the world continues to try to intrude, to insert itself between our Lord and ourselves. Other things try to take priority in our lives. We may not have idols of wood or stone, but other idols can get between us and our God.

Work or money can try to take first place in our life; family or friends can become our first concern; a sinful behavior or a bad habit can get control of us if we do not make the Lord the most important thing in our life. Let us not be in bondage but seek the Lord’s mercy. There is freedom in the Lord. When He is first in our life everything else falls into line.

May you know the true freedom that comes from Christ our Lord.
