THE GREAT EMANCIPATOR

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 (NKJV)

Christ Jesus was and is the Great Emancipator. He came to set men and women free, not from political or military tyranny but from the far worse grip of sin. When you embraced Christ as your Savior, Lord, and Life, you were liberated immediately from the penalty of sin—eternal death. Its mastery over you was shattered instantaneously and permanently.

That was only the beginning. Christ came not only to loose you from sin’s penalty but also to unshackle you from its power that still seeks to enslave your emotions, will, and personality. “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly,” Jesus declared (John 10:10 NASB). Was He only joking? Did He really mean that you can attain a life that is free from the chains of habits and fears and worries?

Did Christ ever speak a false word? NO, He wants you to be free to experience the most wonderful life you can imagine—His life expressed through your personality. Are you ready to learn how?
