free from ... CONFORMITY.
Finding TRUTH and wisdom. That is key
Breaking free from ... UNSEEN captivity
... will give you “eyes to see” AND perceive.
Breaking free from all the “shadow casters”
Who rob true identity ... and create disaster
Do you know the devil is a persuasive pastor?
... on silent airwaves ... a brilliant broadcaster
... on the path of LIFE ... a subtle slave-master
Have you noticed this is an age of arrogance?
It has given birth to a culture of IGNORANCE
Where youth, too soon, lose their INNOCENCE
While our schools indoctrinate ... “SAMENESS”
Insolence & ambivalence produces mindlessness
Poison platitudes ... fuel attitudes of dissidence
LAWLESSNESS is selfishness turned villainous
The world is leading you into the MATRIX
The Enemy is deceiving you and plays tricks
... on your mind to take control of your life ...
... to rob you of peace and fill you with STRIFE
“Dis-ease” causes disease but the race won’t relent
until you give EVERYTHING … and all of you is spent.
You are taught to react ... NOT thoughtfully respond.
You are taught NOT to question … ask what is beyond?
You are NOT told to seek the Truth… but settle for LIES
“Will you walk into my parlor?” *said the spider to the fly.
Satan is just like the spider. He knows exactly what to try ...
As the “father of lies” ... he is ever so clever ... and ever so sly
He appeals to “self”... how deserving you are. Enter thru this popular door
He knows you’re like an addict, never satisfied, you will always want MORE
He allures you with flattery. His seduction is sweet. His path is a LAIR
The enemy of your soul offers trinkets ... but you don’t see the SNARE.
Are you ANXIOUS? Are you weary? Are you awake in some nightmare?
Does your life feel chaotic? Is your heart BURDENED with many cares?
How often do you feel that LIVING ... just hinges on a wing & a prayer?
Broken hearts & broken dreams ... broken promises are endless streams ... that we all share
If you should wake before you die ... can you break FREE? Your striving only produces despair
Guilt & shame ... doubt and blame ... we all carry them the same. It’s NO GAME ... they ensnare
Do you know the ONE who can make you FREE. Will you accept His dare?
“I am the Way. I am the Truth & Life” said Christ. HIS life ... God did not spare.
“He laid down His life for us.” By His SACRIFICE our brokenness can be repaired.
Jesus is the “Glorious-Glue.” He will “make all things new.” His GRACE is everywhere.
The GOOD news: We are not alone. Not left as orphans. Each day our burdens, He bears.
“It is for freedom that Christ set us FREE.” Love others AS yourself. Such LOVE does all forbear.
His invitation “Follow Me.” I AM the Good Shepherd, your place in eternity, I have gone to prepare.
“Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.” ~ Malcolm Muggeridge
TRUTH is speaking to us during our brief earthly journey.
It has been said “there are many paths but only One Way”
One path offers eternal LIFE … the others are a mystery
We FREELY choose the path we take ... the rest is history
Here is true freedom: “If the Son
sets you free, you will be free indeed”
“It is in Christ that we find out who we are & what we are living for. Long before we heard of Him. He had His eye on us ... designs on us for glorious living. It is part of the overall purpose that He is working out in everything & everyone."(Ephesians 1)
A formula that leads to freedom: “More of God ~ less of me”
The “desire-ability” to apply the formula will result in being God-centered instead of self-centered.
“Those who think they can
do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but
never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in
them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with
self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the
open, into a spacious, FREE life. Focusing on the self is the opposite of
focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in “self” ... ignores God, ends up
thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he
is doing. And God isn’t pleased at being ignored.”
Romans 8 The Message Bible (verses 5-8)
