Where to find lasting freedom
March 12, 2013
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
I remember back in the late 70s and early 80s, several Americans were held hostage at the U.S. embassy in Iran. For 444 days, they were held captive at the hands of Islamist students. It was a terrible time for our nation, and resulted in the complete breakdown of relations between the U.S. and Iran.
But in January of 1981, the hostages were released and could finally come home. How beautiful it was when they set foot on American soil and our nation rejoiced together in their freedom. In bondage for so long, they had finally been set free!
And so it is with those of us who are in Christ. For so long, we were held hostage by the power of Satan in our lives. Then came the day when Jesus rescued us and commanded our spiritual foe to release us from bondage so that we could experience freedom in Him.
As believers, we were bought with the blood of Christ. The most wonderful exchange ever made took place on that cross so long ago. Give thanks to God today that in Christ, you’re set free from bondage to sin and death, and can live in the lifelong liberation He’s purchased for you!
GIVE THANKS TODAY THAT IF YOU’RE IN CHRIST, YOU’VE BEEN LIBERATED FROM THE BONDAGE OF SIN AND CAN LIVE IN COMPLETE FREEDOM!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
