The life we lead in obedience to His Word no matter the cost.
If our God, whom we serve, can save us from the white-hot furnace and from your hands, O king, may He save us! But even if He will not, you should know, O king, that we will not serve your god or worship the golden statue which you set up. Daniel 3:17-18
Jesus then said to those Jews who believed in Him, “If you remain in My Word, you will truly be My disciples, and you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you Free. Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. A slave does not remain in a household forever, but a son always remains. So if a son frees you, then you will truly be Free.” John 8:31-32, 34-36
Daniel 3:14-20, 91-92, 95, Daniel 3:52, 53, 54, 55, 56 & John 8:31-42
We learn early on in Scripture that God’s name is “I AM” giving description of Jesus expressing He is Who He is because His Father sent Him. There were only a few people who seemed to understand that Jesus was “the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” See Matthew 16:16. Just as Simon Peter our new Pope Francis understands Jesus is the Christ seeking “the poorest, the weakest, the least important” of humanity as He calls upon people everywhere especially the heads of state to protect life and offer hope by using “tenderness” of God’s love.
Our commitment to God rests in the belief that God’s Will be it burning in the furnace of sin or saved in the Blood of a Lamb will be loved by the life we lead in obedience to His Word no matter the cost. Think of the proclamation we heard today by three young men bound and thrown into a furnace of death for not worshipping a golden calf. “May He save us! But even if He will not, you should know, O king, that we will not serve your god.”
Today we find this in the slavery the Evil One has bonded the world in since he first killed denying His Father’s Truth stealing souls for eternal torment. We seem to be denying Satan’s grip on humanity as a God-fearing believers remain strong in God’s Word sharing the “freedom” Eternal Life renders by the grace God bestows on the faith, hope, love and charity we live in serving His Truth.
I know it’s hard but serve those around you in fellowship of God’s Truth. Console your friends as well as those you don’t know to combat Satan’s tricks with a deep breath of God’s Word. Learn to openly pray with one another by the hope you live in His Truth. Here is where real freedom embraces your soul with the tenderness of God’s love offering grace knowing forgiveness. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we live free in prayer with people we know and don’t know. Day 2 of a Novena for Joelle Metros. Day 8 of a Novena of prayers for New Jersey Emmaus AND Pope Francis. Praying for Kairos. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca and Tom K. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day 9 of a Novena of prayers for Wayne battling cancer. LORD, grant us constancy that we may be willing to stand by those in need. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
For My Word you deny in sin’s sting– John 8:31-38
Jesus gave Word to those who believe
Remain in My Word to totally conceive
A life of Discipleship serving those in need
Knowing the Truth allowing you to be set free
Some answered we are Abraham descendants
Never being enslaved to anyone in repentance
How can we be free if freedom is our dependence?
Christ reminded them they are slaves to sin’s riddance
A sinner is slave to sin without deliverance
Not remaining in a house of hindrance
As a Son remains by His Father’s credence
Remaining always in His House of Obedience
By the Son freedom can truly ring
Why as descendants of Abraham bring?
Trying to kill the Christ as you sing
For My Word you deny in sin’s sting
No room among you for the Father’s ring
