  1. Even though I have been set free by the blood of Christ, too often I find myself caught in the lies and the snare of the enemy who seeks to steal my freedom and joy. Thank you for the reminder and the encouragement that I can “stand firm” in Christ and not be bound again by the yoke of slavery. Needed this today!

  2. I had an abortion when I was 15-years-old and even though I dedicated my life to the Lord when I was 17-years-old, I walked around bound by shame and regret for years. Through a post-abortion Bible Study I realized that Christ’s blood covered ALL my sins. As I fully understand His forgiveness I felt Jesus asking me to forgive myself. I’m so thankful that I allowed Jesus to lift that yoke of slavery!

    Thank you for sharing this Scripture!

  3. Just like Bev Duncan I, too, walk around hearing the lies of the enemy. Far too often I believe them. Thanks for the encouragement!

  4. I am lost, I have been living my life for the past 15 or so years without Jesus, without a proper church. I’m married with 3 kids living in another country to that of home where by parents are Christian and the church I was brought up in. The only strong connection to my past of when I was very close to God. I miss him I want to stand firm but will he accept me again? I feel so disconnected to Him after all the broken promises I have made, will he accept me into his fold again? I want to be close to my father to make him proud. To set a good exAmple for my children, to be happy and strong and to stand firm.

  5. This is for Jas:
    There is nothing that any of us can do that will cause our God and father to love us any less than He already does. That’s why He sent His only begotten son to die for you and I. Don’t let the enemy of our soul fill you with his lies. God’s grace is sufficient for us all and He is so happy when we come back home, His hands are wide open to receive us back into His fold and love. God bless you.
    (Matt 18:12-14; Luke 15:11-24)
