Freedom from the Bondage of Sin

“Therefore, as by the offense of one, judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” Romans 5:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT
One day Abraham Lincoln was in a slave market and saw a beautiful young slave girl being auctioned. Lecherous men were bidding on her, so Lincoln began to bid. Finally, she was sold to Lincoln. He took the certificate of sale and handed it to her saying, “You’re free.”

She asked, “What do you mean, free?”

He said, “You are free.”

She said, “Free to do what I want to do?”

He said, “Yes.”

“Free to say what I want to say?”

He said, “Yes.”

“Free to go where I want to go?”

He said, “Yes.”

She said, “Then I am going with you.”

Friend, Jesus made you free. You have been redeemed by His precious blood. And in gratitude, your life is to be devoted to Him.

ACTION POINT
Do you know someone who is in bondage to sin today? Share with them the free, redeeming love of Jesus Christ.
