How to Lose Your Freedom

grace 101

If you are a Christian, you are radically free. No, I don’t mean you are free with a number of ifs, ands, and buts. I mean you are really free. No disclaimer. No addendum. No qualifying points. You are free. But if that’s true (and it is), then why are so many of us, as Christians, bound by the law? Our focus is wrong.

Steve’s Devotional - The Good Shepherd

steve's devotional

Sheep are just plain dumb. If you are a cattle rancher, you can just let them go out and they will pretty much take care of themselves, but sheep can’t do anything. They require endless attention and meticulous care. Did you know that sheep, more than any other animal, have a mob instinct? If you can get two or three sheep to do something, then you can get the rest to do it. Sheep are also known for their stubbornness. If a sheep learns to do something a certain way, it is almost impossible to teach it any other way. Sheep are the most timid and the most frightened of all the animals. They will run from anything that poses even the slightest danger.

Once you bow before King Jesus, it’s almost impossible to bow before another king. Yeah, sometimes we see all the bad stuff and we want to run, but where are nobodies like us going to go? Join Steve as he looks at Luke 19:28-44 and teaches that Jesus really is the King… even when it doesn’t look like it.

steve's letters

The Resurrection is an exclamation point for everything Jesus demonstrated and taught. It really isn’t a big deal when a religious figure talks about religious things. That’s what religious people do. But if that person got out of a grave after he was stone cold dead, only very shallow and silly people will ignore what he taught. Jesus said that we are loved by God (Oh yeah, it doesn’t feel like it sometimes), forgiven (You don’t know what I’ve done) and valuable (Nobody else thinks so). But aside from our feelings, what he taught is true.
