It is for freedom’s sake that you have been set free from the eternal prison of sin and death. I cannot stand to see you enslaved because My very nature is Love. There is no love without free will, so stand in your liberty.


When we say we give away food at the OpenDoor Food Bank with no strings attached, guess what? That’s exactly what we do. We don’t tell people, “You need to believe in Jesus so say this prayer…” We don’t say, “You need to attend our Bible study or come to our church.” No, sir! We freely give.

I learned this from King Jesus Who freely gives to me. This is heaven’s agenda and heaven’s agenda is always about setting people free. Why is freedom such a big deal to an all-powerful God?  Because people can’t run to Jesus if they’re not set free.

They can’t walk in victory and be an overcomer if they’re not set free. Confidence to run to God, and keep running to Him over and over again, comes from freedom. 

“In Him and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” – Ephesians 3:12 

He wants you free so you can really and truly approach His throne. So you can walk with Him and be real with Him. 

“I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.” – Psalm 119:45

You can’t walk with God unless you’re set free. Freedom is how we’re supposed to live.

 “Live as free men…” – 1 Peter 2:16

The Good Lord gave us free will for a reason. It is a prerequisite to love. Without it, there is only control and God’s not about control. He gave you the ability to choose to love Him or not. He is confident you will make the right decision and extend that invitation to others in search of freedom.
