May 2

Imagine only having a short notice to pack up and move like the Israelites had when God released them from their bondage in Egypt! Not only that, but once they were free, they had to learn a new lifestyle after being in captivity for so long. This is a similar process we go through when we leave our bondage to sin and become free in Jesus. Learning how to be free can be a challenge when all you've known is captivity. Most people don't even realize that they are slaves to their sin. There is a simple question that you can ask God that will help begin that process of freedom and it is this: "God, what sin am I being held in bondage to?" After you ask that question, wait quietly for the answer, He will whisper it to you. Then ask Him for forgiveness and to help you to break that bond. This is not a one time prayer and needs to be repeated often, but once you get your freedom, you never want to go back!

Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36
