A Thought to Consider 11-22-10

Hebrews 2:14-15 "Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death - that is, the devil - and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death."
We are free because of the precious blood of Jesus. Have you ever considered the fact that you are now set free from the power of evil in your life? So many times we don't live in that freedom.
Think about it for a minute........Do you feel free? Do you actually live in the truth that we have victory over sin and death?
I find my identity in so many things......wife, mom, friend, neighbor, teacher, clothes washer, skilled shopper, housekeeper, the list goes on.......But first and foremost my identity is found in Christ!! I am a daughter of the King. I am defined completely by Him because He died, a perfect sacrifice, to free me from the sin of the past, present and future. There is power in the blood of Jesus to free you and me...completely. Sin has lost its power and death has lost its sting. We should be living in the freedom that He died to provide. I will ask you again, do you feel free? This week as we are busy preparing meals, traveling, and visiting with family may we be first grateful for the freedom we have because of Him. May we then choose to live in it!!
Grateful & Free, Joanne
