Ultimate Freedom





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

A Celebration of Freedom for Everyone
The Whole World Over...

…because ultimate freedom
Is not bought with a gun
But by the blood that freely flowed
From Jesus Christ, God’s Son

Pray we would wear His armour
And bear Love’s sacred sword
The Word of God, as soldier
And servant of the Lord

...because ultimate freedom
Is not bought with a gun
But by the love that came to us
In Jesus Christ, God’s Son

No barrier can bar Him
No threat or fiend control
Because ultimate freedom
Is rendered in the soul

  1. This reminds me of a devotional entry I read the other day. People often think that they give up their freedom if they say yes to Christ, and yet that was what he gave us on the cross, freedom.

    1. yes! and then as we understand we realize what we had perceived as 'freedom' was actually a prison!!

  2. I love your choice of "rendered" in the last line - it's so true that freedom in our soul is a marrying of the once-for-all work with the daily becoming.

  3. And there was that ultimate price: the laying down of one life for another, the sacrifice of self that Veteran's Day pictures so beautifully. Thank you for pointing us in that direction, Janet.
