Real Freedom

Key Verse

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36

Text — John 8:32-36


A farmer set a bait with which he caught a beautiful bird in his farm. He took the bird home and kept it a cage where it was fed three times a day. The bird enjoyed the food and the care he received from the farmer. One day, the bird saw through the cage other birds flying in the sky enjoying the natural habitat provided by God for them. This bird in the cage then became aware of the fact that he does not have true freedom and joy. One fateful day, the farmer forgot to lock the cage well. The bird then took that as a privilege and flew out of the cage to enjoy real freedom with other birds.

Like the bird, Satan the enemy of our soul has taken some children captive in his cage. Such children are given to all sorts of sinful habits like immorality, pornography, bad games, stealing, worldly fashion, cultism, bullying, bad association and disobedience to God’s righteous standard. Some want to be free from satanic cage but do not know the way out.

The good news to you today is that Jesus has made provision for your freedom. He is eagerly waiting to set you free if you will trust Him. All you need do is to repent and come out of your sinful lifestyle. Pray for forgiveness and cleansing of your sins with the precious blood of Jesus; accept Him as your personal Saviour and Lord. When you sincerely do this, Jesus will make you free and you will be free indeed.
