freedom. (2)If the Son makes you free – you shall be free indeed.

                                                                      John 8:36

Humans know how to protect and love our children and animals in our care.  We surround them with ‘safety rules’. We would not let an animal like a beautiful horse, free near the highway, for example. We would ensure there was a barrier or a fence. Things like pool fences and warm clothing . and warnings about drugs, etc etc.   all part of human care (ie responsibility for those in our care).     What about the freedom we as believers have.   Do we have FREEDOM?      Yes indeed we do.     Are we in bondage to rules and regulations. NO. 

Jesus Christ’s death at Calvary has set us FREE. His resurrection sealed the deal.

But, what about responsibility………Oh yes and a-men.    Under the new covenant we must be RESPONSIBLE…… in a different way.

Gals 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty/freedom by which Christ has made us free and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. (what bondage.?..……..all the do’s and dont’s  we can’t keep and cause us to stumble. Un-necessary THINGS we may be told we have to do.

NOW:         1. Love the Lord your God with your whole heart, mind, spirit and body.

2. Love your neighbour as you love yourself. …………….  Ie love ALL PEOPLE as humanity…… vunerable and needing LOVE. Have opinions about what they are doing. Passionately HATE EVIL or …..??????????   But love the people.

Jesus as He was preparing to leave John 13 34.     NEW COMMANDMENT……BASED ON ONLY LOVE.


     The answer is only found in DIVINE LOVE.   The Gift of Christ to a needing world. In HIM………DIVINE LOVE.              Relationship with HIM.     Responsibility to live out of Love for Him by his TWO Instructions. 

These are:

DIVINE LOVE…………DIVINE LOVE………..DIVINE. because only from Heaven comes the ability to love this way.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
