Be Free

Jesus shows us the path to a full life.

John 10:9

“I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.”

When you read the word “saved” above…substitute the words “made whole.”

When we follow Jesus in the way he lived and died…we are on the path of becoming whole.

This is the path of letting go of our ego’s desires so that our true self can bloom.

It is the path of love.

When we love…we are all that we were made to be.

Then…we are truly free.

Then we will “have life and have it more abundantly” as Jesus put it (John 10:10).

In the “Our Father” prayer, Jesus said that we should pray for God’s kingdom to come…meaning into the present.

When Jesus is our gate…we determine what we do and say by following his way.

If we do this…we are promised true freedom and inner peace.

When we live in the presence of God who is always present…is not the kingdom of God at hand

Easier said than done!

Let’s do it.
