This  is a word from Pastor Timothy Burdick, Minister of Abilities for Friday Study Ministries:

Christian Liberty

"Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?' 'No one, sir,' she said. 'Then neither do I condemn you,' Jesus declared. 'Go now and leave your life of sin'" (John 8:10-11)

Many people donít understand the magnificent freedom that we have in Christ. Therefore, Godís grace to them has become a license to sin. After all, they reason, doesnít the Bible say that God will forgive my sin? So canít I do what I want and ask for forgiveness later? No! God can see your motives; He knows that you didnít come to Him in a spirit of repentance.

The freedom that we experience in Christ is freedom from a misuse of our bodily desires, and from sin itself. Christ calls us back to a higher dimension where we can be His bond slaves. The bond slave in the Bible was one who held the position of slave by choice. So all of us have a choice to make when we hear the claims of Christ. Will we be enslaved to sin and to our bodily appetites which will lead us further and further into bondage? Or will Christ be our Master, leading us more and more into freedomís light?

Thank you for reading this,
Pastor Timothy Burdick
