Your Best Is Enough (It Is Between You and Your Savior)

“The only real requirement for God’s children is that they try to the best of their ability to walk in love, and this takes living with the freedom for which Christ gave his own life. Like Jesus said to his disciples who were nitpicking about a faithful follower and what she was doing, Let her alone … She hath done what she could- Mark 14:6, 8. So long as we do what we can, then all is well, and really, who cares when people say otherwise?!” ~LMJ~

Freedom’s Key

“Throughout God’s healing Word we have been given tremendous insights about our delighting in faith, hope, and charity, as these spiritual truths are very liberating and inspirational. Jesus said in John 8:31-32 If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. You see ― the key to the freedom Jesus was referring to is in the continuing in his word, for through his word freedom is recognized, received, and then freely maintained in one’s life.” ~LMJ~

He still Is Our Father

“Before Jesus Christ began teaching his disciples, they never understood God as a Father, and that not only was God his Father, but that He was going to become theirs. Today when we hear the words ‘our Father’ in reference to God, it does not faze us at all because we commonly know this term, but back then it was an incredible mind-blower. Jesus’ life showed God in a new light as our heavenly Father, and He still is Our Father!” ~LMJ~

Makes You Free!

If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free– John 8:31-32. As disciples of Jesus, we will come to know the truth, for the truth itself shall make us free to be his disciples. I once saw a poster illustrating an arm garbed with a robe and an outstretched hand that we were to assume was Jesus setting a bird free, and the caption below said, The truth will set you free- John 8:32. This Scripture was not even quoted accurately. The kind of freedom that Jesus was teaching was freedom to choose to walk with him; believers are never set free in the sense of being just simply freed to aimlessly wander around. Rather we were made free from the world, to be able to follow and become true Disciples of Christ, through the words of God that Jesus Christ spoke.” ~LMJ~
