Have you ever glanced across a wide open field with the grass dancing in the breeze and the sun calling out your name and thought, I want to run with abandon and breath in that wide open space? Only when you went to take the first step you tripped over your past? Stumbled over your weakness, your inability — even your disability.
the lie: I am bound forever, My past / My disability / My Struggles are too ______ for Calvary.
Before you can cross into that wide open space of freedom you will have to speak with the gatekeeper. He is there, right where you are, holding out a gift. This gift isn’t like any other gift you’ve ever gotten, this gift is an exchange. You hand him all of you — all your past, all your inability, all your fears and doubts and weaknesses. And He hands you all of Himself. All of His namesake, All of His heritage, all of His righteousness and worthiness. And then he turns to the side with arms wide as the sky and says
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
