We are free. Isn’t that beutiful?
I know being free is different for everyone.
If we are an American, we are free to do basically anything, there’s a lot of temptations. If you live in another country, freedom may be a little harder. Some countries don’t even allow people to worship our God. And that is a scary fact. Freedom is a gift, friends. Let’s use it for good.
So, lately I’ve been reading 1 Peter and I have been amazed with just how much God has been teaching me. Here’s a fact with probably most of us, we are afraid to speak about God because of what people might think of us. I know that I am sometimes.
But I want to share a verse with you.
“As free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.” 1 Peter 2:16
We need to use our freedom to speak and worship our Savior, the living God. He is real and He is real. This is important, if we aren’t using our freedom to speak about God, how are our friends who don’t know Christ hearing about Him? If we are using our freedom to be just like our friends who don’t know Christ, are we any different?
Be different. Be a light. Be love. Show love in this broken world.
Share Christ with someone who doesn’t know Him today.
Speak about Him. Share your story. You have one for a reason. Christ put you where you are for a reason.
You are chosen.
