Finally Free

Today in church, I found myself completely taken away by truth. It wasn't a special service with special music to dazzle a crowd. It was just another service displaying the grace and power of God. But the words spoken were just the right words for my heart at that exact moment. The power of the Word connected with my heart in such a way to break chains and burdens that have weighed my heart. Chains that I didn't even know were there. I was genuinely moved...Overwhelmed with joy. Ecstatic with freedom. In awe of this revelation. This revelation of Jesus. Who He is.....

The Messiah. The Son of God. The Truth. The Way. My salvation. My hope. My Savior.

And when something like this really clicks with you...when you really get it. It sets you free. From deception, false identity, false reality. From my religion.

I guess I am knowing Jesus for who He really is. I am no longer taking bits and pieces of who I want Him to be, but am allowing His complete wholeness to reside within my being, giving Him all authority and lordship over my life.

So today when I took communion, I felt immersed in bountiful grace and honored with the true revelation of Christ. I was humbled. And I accepted all He is and all He gave. For me.

For I am His and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ.
