Are you free? Who, or what governs you? Humans have always longed and cried out for freedom.
Even if we live in a democracy, in a free society, there is no guarantee that we are free in ourselves. Freedom is essentially on the inside, in our heart.
So the question remains, who, or what governs you?
You may say, “I am free”, but in reality be a slave to your own greed, pride, anger, or lust. While those things govern us, we are not free.
Jesus died to set us free from our sin.
He went on to say, If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (John 8:36). If Jesus, the Son of God, sets you free, you are truly free.
Britain stands at a crossroads in history, with a unique (and time-sensitive) opportunity to choose what kind of nation she wants to be going forward. It’s not difficult to recognise the growing hardness of heart across the world.
Britain has never been, and is not now, guiltless when it comes to self-centredness. Yet in her foundations and heritage there is a strong, pervasive emphasis on human worth and dignity; justice, care, concern, compassion. In the face of the growing darkness internationally, it’s more important than ever that Britain take a stand for these principles - however much it costs us.
This is in stark contrast to all other religious and non-religious worldviews.
Both history and the present are full of the tragic and terrifying evidence of what happens when these ideas are lived out to their logical conclusions.
Britain must, as a nation, recognise the urgency of taking a stand for those time-honoured principles of inherent human worth and dignity; and love and compassion towards all people. As individuals, we must realise that the only ground those principles stand on is the reality of a Creator God who has revealed himself in His Son Jesus. He freely offers each one of us a personal relationship with Himself, if we will turn to Him. Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart (Hebrews 3:15).
What’s our particular goal as a society? What are we focused on and aiming for?
Political stability? Economic security and prosperity? Personal happiness or contentment?
Or is our goal love?
Love means to seek the best for all others, at whatever cost to myself.
If anything other than love is our goal, we will experience weakness, disappointment, and ultimately the collapse of our hopes - because only love can fulfil and sustain a person or even a society.
If love is our goal, it can only be found in God. He is love. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights (James 1:17)
The Bible tells us that God didn’t spare his own Son - but freely gave Him up for us all. And in turn, his Son Jesus freely gave up His life for us all. He did this to bring us into the love of God the Father, who, if we turn to Him, transforms us by the power of his Holy Spirit so that we can too love with his love.
Will you open your heart up to God through Jesus Christ?
Will you allow him to transform your heart so that your highest goal is love - His love; and so that He can give you the power to love like He does?
