Freedom Through Truth
By Billy Graham

We are all interested in truth, and Christ is truth. When you give yourself to Him, He opens the doors of your mind in the most glorious way. You see a new dimension of life that you have been previously blind to. When you open yourself to Christ—to truth—your life lights up. Your whole inner life glows, and there comes a peace and joy and security that only He can give.

God demands a decision, a commitment, a surrender, a conversion. Jesus said, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). It wasn’t optional. He said, “You must be born again” before you can get into the Kingdom of Heaven.

When you come to Christ, He gives you a freedom that is real. First, He frees you from the penalty of sin; and second, He frees you from the power of sin. How wonderful!

Our heavenly Father has seen everything that you have ever done. He is just waiting now for you to come and confess it, to acknowledge it and say, “Lord, here I am. I want a fresh start. I want a new day in my life. I want a new beginning. I want a new birth. I want to be yours from this moment.”

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father,
thank You for the freedom we have in Christ. 
Thank You that when we come to Christ, 
Satan no longer has the power over our lives that he once had. 
Sin is no longer in command; You are. 
Thank You for giving Your Son to die for our sins. 
In Jesus’ Name.
