What delicious freedom I had as a child. I remember loving to skate down the sidewalk on my roller skates. They had metal wheels and you attached them to your shoes with a skate key. If we started going too fast we'd fall on the grass beside the sidewalk. It was great fun and so freeing, almost like flying! We had no safety gear like helmets and knee pads etc, and there were probably a few skinned knees. But mainly we loved the sport.
In these days skates are designed for rinks and skate parks, or the wheels are on boards, and helmets and pads are needed for safety. Seems it was a simpler time back then. Simplicity does not appear much these days except. . . Our God never changes and His message is simplest of all. He is our Creator, our Father, and He loves us dearly~ each one of us. Even though the adversary is evil and fights to win God’s kids away from Him, the Father sent His Son Jesus to save us and to fight for us on our side. Jesus suffered and died for us, because He loves us too. He took on the whole human sin debt and paid it off, so when we accept Jesus’ gift, we are no longer under the devils thumb. We are free indeed!
We are free to choose Jesus recognizing Him as our Savior; we are free to learn the teachings of Jesus and of the character of Father God and His love nature. We have God’s DNA and in following the teachings of Jesus, we know the freedom of living a life of purpose and love with a God who is always close. Our choice governs all. If we choose to spend daily time with our Lord, it results in an ever closer relationship with Him.
That free feeling of flying down the hill on skates cannot begin to compare to the free feeling of knowing every problem, every situation I face can be taken to my God and bring His supernatural power into solving it. So my life on earth is made easier and I know that my choosing to serve Jesus and live as He commands will bring me to heaven when I die. My eternity will be lived in joy and happiness with my God who loves me dearly!
