Everyone needs to be set free from something at some point in their lives. Many of us long to be free to be ourselves, to be free from sin or mistakes that have weighed us down, and to be free from the fears and insecurities that plague us. With the help of the Bible, honesty, friends, and purpose, God can free us from anything that’s weighing us down, and can work through us to inspire others to find freedom too. Check out this Let’s Talk Night to learn more about how to have the courage to live an inspiring life.
John 8:34-36 ERV
Jesus said, “The truth is, everyone who sins is a slave-a slave to sin.  A slave does not stay with a family forever. But a son belongs to the family forever.  So if the Son makes you free, you are really free.
2 Timothy 3:1-6 TPT
But you need to be aware that in the final days the culture of society will become extremely fierce.  People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly.  They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right.  With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God.  They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power. Stay away from people like these!  For they are the ones who worm their way into the hearts of vulnerable women, spending the night with those who are captured by their lusts and steeped in sin.
John 3:19-21 NLT
And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.  All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.  But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.”
Isaiah 43:1-4 NLT
But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.  When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.  For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place.  Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.
