Stuck or free it's up to me!
We are as stuck as we choose to be, and as free as we try to be, Jesus said He would set us free! (John 8:31-36). The choices we make in our lives, determine just how free or trapped we can be to anything! We can desire freedom, yet get trapped in all the ways to get there. There are so many books, so many plans and blue prints it can drive us crazy!
We who try to write, need to be pointing folks to the one who can truly bring a freedom. We need to do it with less words, and take up less time! I can remember when there was not as many books, and ideas, and ways, to point people to Jesus. We are trying to create new ideas, less obtrusive ways, less offensive, and less forceful ways, that we forget it is simpler than that!
We need to share more testimony than opinion. We need to show more changed lives, than suggestions on how to change! People need to see change as much as they hear about change! They need to see the freedom that comes with knowing Jesus. We being His disciples need to live a life that explodes with freedom!
We need to share the hard times as well as the good. We need to be real. We need to share more Jesus than us! We all get this freedom from Jesus, so why complicate it with more words than illustrations? The bible says, let your light so shine before men, that they may see you good works and glorify your Father in heaven.(Matthew 5:16).
Jesus said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave to sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed".
Stuck in your way, or free, Jesus' way? You have a choice. If your way has not worked, what have you to lose? think about it? All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
