14God has purchased our freedom with his blood and has forgiven all our sins.
I have spoken with two friends this week that have desperate situations. As I listen to them talk and explain all the things going on in their home, I feel hopeless. Even as I pray I wonder how on earth to pray? How can I pray for something that seems impossible? My flesh longs to tell these women to run and never look back, but the spirit tells me to believe for the impossible. Just yesterday as I spoke to one of these precious women on the phone I said, "This is why we need a Savior! This is what the blood of Jesus is all about!" And this morning as I read today's passage I found this scripture.He purchased our freedom with His blood! Do we really believe that? Do we really believe when we are in the midst of being in our own prison that our freedom is really there? It's times likes these that we learn what the blood of Jesus is all about! When we are in need, when things look hopeless, that's when our Savior comes in and changes everything. That's the WHOLE reason He died on the cross! He died to set us free, free from everything! It may seem impossible, it may seem like everything is DEAD, but during those times we have to focus on the blood, the blood of Jesus! No matter what it is, the blood is there for you.
23But you must continue to believe this truth and stand in it firmly. Don't drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News.
How can I stand firmly in the truth? Just a thought.
28So everywhere we go, we tell everyone about Christ. We warn them and teach them with all the wisdom God has given us, for we want to present them to God, perfect[f] in their relationship to Christ. 29I work very hard at this, as I depend on Christ's mighty power that works within me.
Everywhere I go, everywhere I go, everywhere I go! Everywhere I go, I MUST share.
