Wow… I have been reading a great new book (no, I can’t share the title just yet… LOL) and it has some really great things in it that I can’t wait to share with the congregation at MPC. We briefly touched on it a few weeks ago when we talked about people who come in from the world and they have been the life of every social setting and party they attended, yet in the church, they shrink down and become a wall flower.
God didn’t come to cage us up, he came to set us free. Truth is not a ‘zoo keeper’! Truth is the activist that breaks into the caged area and begins to unlock doors that keep people shut in, not the other way around.
The difference in seeing an animal in the wild vs. behind the fence of a zoo should be the same contrast seen in a child of God who has been set free from the ‘cage’ of sin.
There are cages that we put ourselves in sometimes, even while serving Jesus. Those are what we may be discussing in the next several weeks. Could be interesting…
In the meantime, let’s take some keys of Truth and show the captive, “This is How it Feels to be Free!”
