Freedom Devotional (March 19)

In our journey of Experiencing God, we begin a new series on Sunday for the Easter season. I hope you are finding yourself in reflection. Asking God to reveal what He is teaching us, or even how far we have come on our spiritual walk is healthy and even necessary to grow in maturity. It causes us to be spurred on and builds our faith.

But have you ever asked yourself what you actually believe? About God, about Jesus, about the Bible? Not what you have been told or what you've bought into, but what YOU believe. Is it true? How can we be sure? 

I hope that I am alone in this, but I have moments where I wonder if I am believing in a big, elaborate hoax. Of course, such doubts are short-lived as I am flooded with memories of unmistakable evidence in my own life that what I know to be true is, in fact, TRUE.

Unwavering faith pleases God greatly, but He has also left us amazing, tangible evidence that our faith is not a lie. 

As we begin to explore the Apostles' Creed and its bold statements of faith, I would like to examine some of the evidence that stands to support what we believe. In preparation, read the book Evidence That Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell. The whole thing. It's fascinating and encouraging. Well, at least take another look at the Apostles' Creed. Consider its claims. Do you believe, without a doubt, that they are true? If you do, spend some time is praise, because none other than the Holy Spirit has revealed it to you. If you are uncertain, take the time bring that to the LORD. You won't regret it. 

See you on Sunday,
