So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
Are you experiencing the freedom that comes from knowing Jesus? If yes, it is because of the intimate spiritual relationship that you have with him. If no, spiritual intimacy with Christ should be your priority, aim and goal.
Most of us have experienced at one time or the other 'a great freedom' in our beings when we were in the company of a close friend. Easy to share and easy to reciprocate.
We can have a similar relationship with Jesus though we may not see him bodily.
No doubt, Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, but he is also the one of whom the Bible says,
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. (Hebrews 4:15, 16)
There are some believers who think that Jesus is not able/not willing to sympathize with our weaknesses. That's not true. Because he went through all the temptations that we have to go through, he knows our state and how much we can endure. Yet he desires that we overcome as he overcame and live victorious lives.
Freedom comes with submission and if one can submit totally to Jesus, a great freedom can be experienced inside us. The Son of God is always willing to set us free if we can submit to him. It's my prayer for you this day that the Lord may set you free to proclaim his name all throughout the world.
Experience freedom that comes from knowing Christ.
