So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. –John 8:36 NIV
We all struggle to get through life on our own. However, God is always with us waiting to help us and to live mightily through our lives. He is the One who sets us free. He is our Hope-Giver. We are never left to look after ourselves in this life.
In the Bible, we are told that this earth is only a temporary home. Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross prepared a way for us to be forgiven, cleansed, and restored. We are given a new life and a destiny through Christ for eternity. We are changed from the inside out when we accept Him as our personal Savior. Our hearts and desires completely change. He gives us a great purpose for every day that is before us.
God is preparing a place for us, with Him, to live forever. And we can be assured, it will be far better than we could ever imagine. As 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT) tells us, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” How blessed we are to have such incredible love.
- Praise God who offers us the hope for eternity.
- Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of Jesus who willingly went to the cross for me.
