In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
Why are people not set free? The problem, as it was in the days of the prophets, is not the message but the ears of those hearing. Ears that do not hear… Yet for those who do listen, there is this message of freedom.
Does my life reflect that I have heard what God is saying through Jesus? The evidence, I think, would be seen in the people in my life. In my family and in my church, is there an abundance of freedom and grace being extended? Do the people in my life feel freed up by me (as I reproduce the life and message of Jesus) or do they feel constrained and judged? It is the year of the Lord’s favor! Jesus has come to set us free! Let’s be free… and let’s be freedom fighters, contending for the freedom of others.
Father! Thank You for speaking through Jesus. Thank You for setting me free from sin and death and for giving abundant life in Your Son. Help me to have eyes to see and ears to hear His message. Help me, God, to speak and live Your truth so that others can live free too.
