FREEDOM IN FAITH


STANDING STRONG THROUGH THE STORM

FREEDOM IN FAITH
================
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free
indeed. John 8:36

During an SSTS seminar in Central Asia, we listened to
testimonies of the
participants who were mostly from Muslim background. We
asked how long they
had been followers of Jesus. The majority answered, “Nine
years.”

When we asked how they had become believers, they shared that
there was a
vicious religious civil war in their country nine years earlier.
It had shown
them the true colors of Islam and they turned to follow Jesus
for the reasons
listed below:

1. LOVE

Jesus of the Bible
teaches and exemplifies love and compassion.

2. WORSHIP

They were
attracted to the Christian love of singing and worshipping God with
praise
and joy!

3. FORGIVENESS

Jesus shows how to forgive our enemies –
feed them and give them water to
drink.

4. JESUS’ LIFE

Jesus’
teachings and His example are very attractive.

5. WOME

Jesus holds
women in high esteem.

6. FAITH

Jesus claims to be the way, truth
and life. Salvation in Christ is by faith
alone. No works or rituals or rules
can save us.

7. TRUTH

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is “Good News”
because He is the Truth. The Gospel
is based on Truth.

8.
LIBERTY

Christian expression is based on freedom and liberty in Christ.
The Bible
teaches the basis for such liberty.

These eight positive
principles are a powerful affirmation of the uniqueness
of Jesus
Christ.

RESPONSE: Today I will appreciate the uniqueness of the Gospel
and Jesus my
Savior.

PRAYER: Pray today that many more Muslims may
come to faith in Jesus and
follow Him fully.
