Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Freedom is one of humanity’s most prized possessions! Yet many people are in captivity. You see, we aren’t just physical beings; we are also spiritual.

We can be enslaved spiritually as well as physically.

YESHUA  said that anyone who commits sin is in bondage to it, referring to continuous wrongs that become a lifestyle, even for the believer! 

Almost anything—including the pursuit of power, money or relationships—can develop into a pattern of sinful living. Usually ungodly habits begin in a way that seems innocent and fulfills a desire or need. 

Overtime, we can become desensitized to any guilt that we might have felt in the beginning. As we sense less conviction by the Holy Spirit, our habit can become comfortable and eventually control us.

John 8:34
Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave to sin.”

Let’s not be deceived by Satan and his schemes; take an honest look at  life’s motivations!

Is there some habit, emotion or dream that owns you? 

There is only One who can set us free. His name is YESHUA. Cry out to Him today!

With lots of prayers & love,
