Jesus is Freedom
Jesus Is Freedom.
Jesus died so that all people could have freedom through him; freedom from lies, freedom from sin and freedom from death.
In this week's passage from John 8, we see Jesus continue to address the spiritual leaders of Israel. He answers their questions honestly, confidently and clearly. He declares truth while exposing their lies.
At the end of his discussion, Jesus makes the boldest claim to his identity as of yet: He declares, "Before Abraham was, I AM." This declaration of his eternal being, and his equality with God, forces us to make a decision. Will we accept that true freedom and eternal life is found in Jesus, or will we believe the lies of Satan, and remain in slavery to sin?
