I’m having trouble adding pics to posts since the most recent update. It was a simple process…now it’s a frustrating mess. Praying for patience, thank You, God.

Life’s Great Liberator

April 28, 2017

Teacher: Charles Stanley
Read Luke 4:16-21

From the appearance of some people, we judge them to be happy. Smiles, makeup, and stylish clothes can create an impression of inner peace. Internally, though, many are in bondage.

In today’s passage, Jesus clarifies His purpose: He has come to set free those in captivity. Christ was referring to two types of bonds that can imprison our soul.

First, Jesus breaks the chains of sin. All people have broken God’s law, and the consequence is to live apart from Him (Rom. 3:23). But Christ’s death and resurrection free us when we accept His gift of forgiveness and place our trust in Him. Then we can have a relationship with the Lord.

Second, God liberates us from persistent sins like jealousy, bitterness, and gluttony. His Spirit resides within each believer and provides the power to overcome wrong choices that seem to own us. He enables us to do what He desires—by bringing immediate healing or by giving guidance and strength in the ongoing battle.

The Creator of mankind made us with a void in our heart for Jesus to fill. Everything we put there—whether it seems like a good thing at the time or an obvious bad choice—will ultimately leave us wanting. And we’ll remain in bondage until God frees us and then provides the only true satisfaction.

Are you one of those people who appear happy and seem to have life figured out, and yet inside feel uneasy and empty? Jesus Christ is the only One who can redeem you, forgive your sins, and fill the vacant place in your soul. Allow Him to liberate you today.


A Beautiful Day!

Even on a “bad” day, there’s always something to be happy about. Praise the LORD!

A Lamp To My Feet

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105)

“The flickering light cast by the olive oil lamp of Bible times was only bright enough to show a traveler his next step.  Scripture is such a lamp.  It gives us just enough light to see where to place our feet so that we can walk safely into our future.  The believer does not need a searchlight that casts light on coming weeks and years.  All that is in God’s hands.  We need only enough light to make sure that the next step we take is just and right.” – Lawrence O. Richards
