Thought of the Day November 16, 2018 We are free, but

By 10:24 AM

The ransom has been paid! That’s the reality! That’s the truth! That’s the Good News!
  “For there is one God. There is also one mediator between God and the human race,
Christ Jesus, Himself, human, who gave Himself as ransom for all.” (1 Tim 2:5-6)

But there is another reality! In spite of this undeniable truth, we are still bound by sin of
choice and we are still bound by the lies around us. We are bound by our guilt and shame,
our fears from the past and for the future and we are bound by our insecurities. We are
bound by the perceived or real hurts and scared memories from the past. We are bound
by the isolation from peers. We are bound by additions–sexual, alcohol, drug, overeating.
We are bound by the demands and fads of our environment and society. We are bound
by the music we listen to, the TV programs we watch, the movies and Dvd’s we view,
by the conversations we have. 

Who is setting the standards of our lives? Who is setting the moral agenda of right and
wrong?  Who tells us that there is nothing wrong with premarital sex, with pornography,
with over drinking? Who encourages us to abuse  our bodies to look more sexy, more
attractive, more acceptable, more in? Who tells us if it feels good it is alright; if everybody
is doing it, it is cool? Who feeds our darkest feelings and sinful desires for their own profit?
Who tells us there is no hell, no consequences for our actions? (To be continued)
