When Freedom Comes

It has been said that when I was young I told my Mom that “a promise is a promise.”  It was more than something cute a preschool age boy might say.

Romans 15: 8-9

8 For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, 9 and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy.

Paul reminds us of Jesus’ purpose – to show the truthfulness of God (Remember it is impossible for God to lie-Hebrews 6:18)by confirming the promises given since Adam and now we are to Rejoice and give God glory for His mercy.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard a song called When Freedom Comes written from the viewpoint of Christ.

When Freedom comes.
It will be worth it.
It will be worth it.
When it comes to you…

Cause you’ve got too much on your shoulders.
Too much in your head.
Too much in your heart…that’s poisonous.

Look deep.
I see things that keep you from seeing Me.
My will be done. In everyone.

Cause you’ve got burdens on your shoulders
Lies in your head.
Pain in your heart…that wants you dead.

Spirit open their eyes.
Open their minds.
Open their hearts and help them know…
Truth from a lie
Foe from a friend
That I AM for them!

Because I want
Freedom on their shoulders
Peace in their heads
Love in their hearts.  Again.

We have a reason to sing.  A reason to be filled with joy and peace.  God cannot lie.  Jesus is the Truth.  When we know the Truth, we will be free.  Indeed.
