We praise God for freedom that comes through His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ!
In referring to Jesus Christ, Luke 4:18-19 (NKJV) records,
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
2 Corinthians 3:17 (NKJV) reads,
"Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
True Freedom. True Liberty. These will become a true reality only when the world comes to believe, and surrender to, the whole truth about Jesus Christ.
