Set Free

January 3, 2019 | Author: | Posted in New Beginnings

Today’s devotional reflection on New Beginnings is about: Set Free.

6 “We know that our old self was crucified with him so that
    the sinful body might be destroyed, and we might no longer be
    enslaved to sin.

7 For he who has died is freed from sin.”
    – Romans 6:6-7, RSVCE | NJB

Set Free (New Beginnings Devotional Reflection)

Aiden was twelve years old, a foster kid living in a rundown neighborhood. He joined a gang and spent the next few years dealing drugs and engaging in other illegal activities.

Shortly after he turned twenty, Aiden was arrested. He was sentenced to several years in prison for his part in a home robbery. He had taken priceless family heirlooms an elderly woman and sold them for money.

When the woman requested to meet with him, Aiden was nervous. He expected to see hate in her eyes and hear condemnation fall from her lips. But he received neither.

Instead, a frail woman with a head full of white hair showed up and gave him the biggest hug. She explained that she’d come not to scold but to forgive. “I want you to know that new beginnings are possible at any moment.” She said. “No matter what you’ve done or how far you’ve gone.”

Like Aiden, you may have done things you’re not proud of. But Your Heavenly Father is willing to offer you a new beginning. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9, NIV)

God, I confess I’ve sinned.
I want to be set free, to walk in a new beginning.
Show me the right path and help me to walk it.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
