Freedoms Front Door, The Door is Open
"Freedom's Front Door” is the motto for the organization I am currently assigned to. I travel across the East coast talking and trying to encourage those that work within our company about what we do and what our motto is about. What does it really mean to the men and women that come through our front doors everyday looking for a better/different way of life. Some come seeking an escape from the streets that offer nothing, some come seeking to be able to feed their families and provide shelter for them, some come seeking education opportunities, some come seeking to follow in family footsteps, and some come to see what we have to offer. They all come seeking a change, seeking something different out of life, just as I did 21 years ago.
The sad truth is that not everyone that walks through our front doors will be able to receive what they came seeking. Sometimes past actions, health conditions or current way of life will prevent them from becoming a part of our organization. It breaks my heart when I see someone who has such a desire to join our team but can't. For some their condition is temporary, for others it is permanent.
Oh, but when I think of the true Freedoms Front Door, I can’t help but to think about the greatest door to freedom. The door that we can all walk through with no fear of rejection. The Door to Salvation. When we ope up our hearts and let God in. True Freedom is accepting God in our hearts and knowing that we can be free in Him. Romans 10:8-13
I am so glad to serve a God that did not disqualify me from serving on His team because of my past or present mess-ups and issues (we all have issues). I serve a God that stood at the door and waited on me to come in. He didn't lock the door, like some of us do when people mess up, but He kept the door open. When we walk through the door of salvation we walk into freedom. We can be free from living a life filled of sin, free from the grips of the enemy having control over us, free from having to fight our own battles, free from worry, from chains, free from all those things that hold us down. WE CAN BE FREE!!
We can be free to love, free to have peace and joy in our lives, free to turn our issues over to God and let Him fight our battle, free to walk in the path that He directs for us. You can only find TRUE FREEDOM in GOD. A freedom of the spirit that you can’t get from anywhere else.
If you are reading this and you have not accepted Christ into your life, you can do it right now. It is not hard, just say this and mean it from your heart: Father God, I confess with my mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in my heart that God raised him from the dead, come into my heart and save me, I want to be free. I receive my salvation, am saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame. “For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:9-13). If you accepted Christ into your heart, I pray you commit to seeking a church home, get baptized and become involved and seek a greater relationship with God for yourself.
You have a right to be SAVED and FREE
If you are already saved, live your life in a manner that the unsaved will know you a different and will seek to be like the God in you.
God Bless you.
