Issues, anyone?!

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Is that a trend or something? I don't know what it is but I've heard that phrase said quite a bit. We were even walking down the Wal-Mart isle to pick up a few things before we left for Israel and my wife showed me a T-shirt with "I have issues" written across the front! I guess the world is coming to the sad reality that we really do have some issues.

It's always good to realize this kind of thing — but realizing is only half the battle. It looks like the world has gone and just left it at that. What they're really saying is "We have issues and we're just going to let you know that up front — we'll even be wearing a T-shirt to remind you so that you won't be expecting much from us!"

Well guess what? We, as believers, don't need to fall for that baloney! Yes, we all acquire issues in this sinful, painful world we live in — but it is possible to be free from those issues in Messiah! It's not only possible — it's crucial! We need to be wearing a T-shirt that says "We had issues, but the Lord delivered us and now we're free — and hey — you too can be free!"

We are the ones who need to be leading the way to Freedom, wouldn't you agree? This Independence Day (though we're living here in Israel, we can still appreciate a good American Independence Day, lol!), let's take a moment to celebrate our freedom in the Lord! Take all those issues, write them down on a scrap piece of paper and burn them to ashes! If we'll be serious about getting free, God will be serious about setting us free! Happy Fourth!
