"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.” Samuel Adams
VERSE: Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate
and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14
THOUGHT: The world wants a Savior but not a Lord. The New Testament is clear, a Savior who is not Lord is no Savior and no friend. If the Old Testament showed us anything, it is that God's seemingly bizarre laws were written not for his fascination but for his people's preservation. Let's not only call Jesus Lord this week, let's live in a way that shows he controls our lives and his Spirit produces our character.
PRAYER: Most Holy Lord, please take control of my life and my will that I may be wholly yours, not just in word, but in thought and in deed
as well. Amen. (Source: Heartlight)
