The Gift of Free
On Monday, over 2,200 people downloaded, The Sounds of Night, for free. You know what was most amazing about that? Most of the downloads were from countries that don’t have the religious freedom we have here in the United States. Think of just how free we are. Let it soak in.
May we remember all the men and women that work each day to allow us to write blogs, speak our minds, attend church, and BELIEVE. See, the power of free goes beyond giveaways and book downloads. It has a point of origination in time. It soaks through as the color RED. It spills and floods hearts and minds that allow it to reside there. Freedom is only found through Christ and it links us straight to God Himself.
Do you struggle with belief? Is it hard for you to get Christ’s infinite love tucked in your mind and heart? I struggle some days too. Sometimes it’s hard to look at my imperfections and see myself through the RED. Yet, it doesn’t change the reality that I’m covered in God’s grace because Christ is my Lord. My doubt is covered. Your doubt is covered in grace…in spilled blood. The disciples were filled with doubt. The very men that God chose, the 12 imperfect men, that Jesus appointed to carry the gospel through the ages, were doubters. They struggled with the notion of free. They struggled with receiving the power of Christ.
See, what Jesus said to Thomas in John 14:5-7: “Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” The gift of free. It starts in Christ. I pray that you will take your free gift and tuck it inside today.
