Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath.Mk2:27. When we enshrine principles of freedom into religious mandates it becomes entrapment. Jesus came to set us free. The principles and commandments that Jesus gave ensure we can live our life in the greatest liberty possible. If we look closely at what Jesus asks, we realise that He is actually giving us a framework to preserve and protect us. When we step outside of what God desires for us, we can get hurt. Jesus was the greatest liberator of all. He came to give those who will believe on Him an eternal life that no one else can give. It’s not about adherence to regulations, but a desire to live a life that pleases God that becomes a natural response through our relationship with Him. Thank Jesus for the freedom,liberty,love,joy and peace that we have through Him today.
