Free Range Disciples

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36

 

When we are running in our lives full-tilt we might not see our slavery.

 

When life is going well we might to sense our slavery.

 

When we are at the top of the pile we cannot see our slavery.

 

“So Jesus said to who had believed in him…”

 

Notice, Jesus said this to the very people who had attached themselves

 

to him.

 

31So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slaveto sin. 35The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you. 38I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.”

 

John 8:31-38

 

Sometimes we must have our attachments in this world shaken,

 

so that we will hear the Word of Jesus

 

and be free

 

to abide

 

in Him.
