How do you know that you are free?
The absence of visible chains?
The destruction of the slave master’s whips?

It begins with knowing that you were not born to be enslaved.
The words and actions of man may say otherwise
but it is the truth spoken by your Creator that matters.
Believe Him.

That is why the Word became flesh,
dwelt among us,
was crucified,
and rose again with all power in His hand.

No one has the right to enslave you, not even you.
Do not accept bondage.
Do not excuse bondage.
You were created to be free.
