DAILY DEVOTION


HI!

I guess, as we get older, our thoughts change.

Carl & Abe were getting older.
When they got together for lunch, they always talked about baseball.
But now that they were older, they began to worry about dying,
and whether there was baseball in heaven.

They agreed that whoever died first would come back and tell the
other if there was baseball in heaven.

A few years went by and one night Abe died in his sleep.
The next night Carl heard a voice, “CARL!”
He answered, “Abe, is that really you?”

Abe answered, “Yes, it’s me.”

Carl said, “Well tell me, is there baseball in heaven?”

Abe said, “Well I have good news and bad news.
Yes. There IS baseball in heaven.”

Carl said, “That is good news! So what’s the bad news?”

Abe said, “You’re pitching tomorrow!”

LIGHT from the WORD.

Like Carl & Abe, Ya never know when it will be YOUR “turn”!
So, the best we can do is BE READY!

Jesus said He came to "set at LIBERTY them that are bruised."

LIBERTY
Liberty is the absence of living under coercion or constraint.
It is the fact of being released from restriction.
REAL liberty is being released from the power of sin which
coerces and restrains.
ONLY Jesus gives that LIBERTY!!!

Notice Rom. 8:2 above states Christians are free
"from the law of sin and death."
That simply means, as Paul states in verse 1 above,
there is "NO CONDEMNATION!"

Notice also, that the liberty is granted conditionally.
It is ONLY for those who "walk...after the Spirit."
That Spirit is the Spirit of LIFE in Christ!

ANY person "in Christ" is free from eternal condemnation
for he/she has RECEIVED eternal salvation!

FREEDOM
Our forefathers declared freedom when they declared
independence from the restraint of the government, king,
and government defined worship.

FREEDOM is actually the MAINTENANCE of LIBERTY!

One does NOT maintain liberty by blocking streets,
burning houses and businesses, or maiming and
killing other people!

In order to MAINTAIN liberty, we must LIVE as
“free spirits” in the Lord!!

First, we must be CLOSE to the Lord, through
prayer and Bible study.
Second, we must have CONNECTION with
the world.
And third, we must USE our connection to TELL
the world of our LORD!

THIS will not be maintained

Until THIS is maintained.

Love ya!
