Liberty Comes From Jesus

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
(Luke 4:18)

Real liberty comes from Jesus only. Only Jesus can give liberty to the captives.

It is a liberty righteously bestowed. Jesus, the Heir of all things, has a right to make men free. He had secured their salvation.

It is a liberty dearly purchased. Jesus bought it by his blood.

It is a liberty freely given. Jesus saves us just as we are, without our help or merit.

It is a liberty done forever.

Let our liberty be practically exhibited in our serving God with gratitude and delight.
