    Freedom, Face Masks, and Lawlessness

    Freedom, Face Masks, and Lawlessness

    In today's podcast devotional JB Shreve looks at the themes of freedom inherent to our July 4th weekend and traditions and a biblical perspective of freedom. Most of our notions about freedom and liberty are not actually related to freedom at all. They are lawlessness. The Bible speaks clearly about God's will for freedom in our lives but freedom is not what we usually think it is. It's not what society, the media, and even many churches tell us it is.  Following that wrong path to freedom is actually very dangerous.



    Lots of Verses in Today's Podcast Devotional



    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1



    Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God… Romans 1:1



    Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. 1 John 3:4



    Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14 



    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:21-23 



    Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. Titus 2:14



    And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. Matthew 24:12



    You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." Galatians 5:13-14



    Live as free men, but do not use your freedom to cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. 1 Peter 2:16

    The Journey and the Name

    The Journey and the Name

    The world is getting darker, more perplexing, more frustrating, more anxious. In the midst of all of that, there is hope. There is a design for how believers should live their life. There is a course for us to follow. In today's podcast devotional we look at the Journey and the Name, the fundamental components that give our life meaning and purpose.



    "When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, 'I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless." Genesis 17:1



    The LORD said to Moses, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Be ready in the morning, and then come up on Mount Sinai. Present yourself to me there on top of the mountain. No one is to come with you or be seen anywhere on the mountain; not even the flocks and herds may graze in front of the mountain." So Moses chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the LORD had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands. Then the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the LORD. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation." Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped. Exodus 34:1-8
