Freedom is most wonderful a word and most wonderful is the feeling that a person privileged to live in a free nation could have. When we think about the freedom of our nation, we understand the price paid for our freedom, by those millions of young men and women in uniform. Because of their sacrifice we can live a worry free life.

In short, freedom is not cheap. Rescuing from bondages is not cheap. There is a heavy price that was paid by the blood of precious sons and daughters of the land. Just as freedom of a nation is important, it is also important that every person could experience freedom in his or her own personal lives. Way back in the history of humankind, Adam and Eve sinned against God by disobeying His word and because of that they experienced great chaos and loss of their peace. Their lives became miserable. Sin and sufferings came in this world. In short sin destroyed their wonderful and peaceful lives.

That’s what sin does in our lives. Sin brings chaos, destruction and peacelessness in our lives. But Jesus came to rescue us from the burden of sin, guilt and chaos and to give us peace that passes all understanding.. For that very purpose Jesus came in this world and gave His precious life so that we could enjoy freedom and great peace that comes when our sins are forgiven.

Jesus said in John 8:32, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Knowing the truth will make us free and the truth is Jesus Himself. In another word, we need to know Jesus personally if we want our sins to be forgiven. He is ready to forgive our sins and wash us with His precious blood.

Are you in bondage and addictions today? Are you not experiencing peace in your life? Come to Jesus, give your life to Him. Repent from your sins and ask for forgiveness of your sins. Jesus will take away your burdens and fill you with great peace that this world cannot give.

We wish our readers a very happy 4th of July! A very special card is waiting for you, please scroll down.

He will not let you die!

By Sherly Isaac

When we trust God, He helps us and rescues us with His mighty hand. Psalmist says in Psa 121:1-5, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills; From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand.”

Hudson Taylor was a missionary to China. In his early walk with God he learned to trust God for all his needs. Once he was doing Gospel work and a poor man asked him to pray for his dying wife. When he reached that poor man’s home he was completely devastated seeing four or five children who were starving for many days. He thought in his heart, "if I had more money I would have given them and helped them to survive. He sought to comfort them by saying that however distressing their circumstances, there was a kind and loving Father looking down from Heaven. But something within him cried, "You hypocrite! Telling these unconverted people about a kind and loving Father in Heaven, and not prepared yourself to spare that half-a-crown (coin which was in his pocket) and to trust Him who will provide."

He felt miserable, but he said to the man, that he is going to pray for his wife. He knelt down, but no sooner had he said, "Our Father," than he heard a voice within saying, "Dare you mock God? Dare you kneel down and call Him Father with that half crown in your pocket?" Finishing the prayer, he arose.

"I put my hand into my pocket," he says, "and slowly drawing out the half crown gave it to the man, thinking that it might seem a small matter for me to relieve them, seeing that I was comparatively well off, but that in parting with that coin I was giving him my all; but that what I had been trying to tell them was indeed true -- God really is a Father and may be trusted. And joy came back in a full flood-tide in my heart! Not only was the poor woman's life saved, but my life had been saved too." Hudson was convinced that money thus given in Christ's name was a loan which He would repay.

He went home happy in heart, and before retiring asked the Lord not to let his loan be a long one or he would have nothing to eat the next day. Early the next morning the postman's knock was heard at the door. He very rarely ever received a letter on Monday morning, hence he was surprised when the landlady came in with a letter. On opening the envelope he found a sheet of blank paper and a half sovereign. "Praise the Lord!" he exclaimed. "Four hundred percent for a twelve hours' investment!" He then and there learned that the bank of Heaven is always dependable and pays good dividends.

His faith in the power of prayer was greatly strengthened, but in the course of two weeks his money was spent and still his employer had not remembered to pay him his salary. He devoted much time wrestling with God in prayer. On Saturday night his landlady would be expecting a payment. About five o'clock that afternoon Dr. Hardey came up to him and said, "By the way, Taylor, is not your salary due again?" I Informed that it was due and past due, the doctor expressed regret that he had not thought of it earlier, "For," he said, "only this afternoon I sent all the money I had to the bank. Otherwise I would pay you at once."

Deeply disappointed, though careful not to let his employer know it, Taylor went to a quiet place and poured out his heart to the Lord. About ten o'clock that evening Dr. Hardey appeared, laughing heartily. "A strange thing happened just now," he stated. "One of my wealthiest patients felt constrained to come to my house at ten o'clock at night to pay his bill, instead of sending a check as per his custom. Very strange!" Having credited the payment in the ledger, the doctor was about to leave, when suddenly he handed young Taylor several of the banknotes and said: "By the way, you might as well take these notes as payment on your salary." "Again I was left," concludes Taylor's account of this incident, "my feelings undiscovered, to go back to my little closet and praise the Lord with a joyful heart that after all I might go to China."

These incidents helped him to trust in God in the darkest hours he faced in China.

Hudson Taylor believed in the words of Jesus with all his heart, "Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do." He believed, as Jesus taught, that the Heavenly Father is not embarrassed by any shortage of supplies, and that if we ask, in childlike trust, our every need will be supplied. "Depend on it," he stoutly contended, "God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supplies." Was a confidence so artless justified? Jesus said: "Your Father knoweth that you have need ... Ask and ye shall receive." Was it as simple as that? We shall see.

Over the mantlepiece in Hudson Taylor's humble home in Ningpo were two scrolls, in Chinese characters -- Ebenezer, "Hitherto hath the Lord helped us," and Jehovah Jireb, "The Lord will provide." The faith expressed in these mottoes was subjected to many severe testings. Quite suddenly the angel of death took the wife of his missionary associate, Dr. Parker, leaving him with four motherless children. On their account and because his own health was shattered, Dr. Parker was compelled to return to Scotland. This created a crisis in the Mission, for Dr. Parker was the only doctor in Ningpo. It looked as though the mission dispensary and hospital would have to be closed, for hitherto the expense of their maintenance had been met by the proceeds of Dr. Parker's practice among the Europeans. This income was now cut off. Taylor believed that to close the hospital and dispensary on financial grounds would be nothing less than doubting God. Calling the hospital assistants together, he explained the situation and said: "If you are prepared to trust God to supply our needs, you are invited to continue your work here. Otherwise you are free to leave. I am confident that His grace is sufficient. Hath not our God said that whatsoever we ask in the name of the Lord Jesus shall be done?"

As the weeks passed, supplies decreased. One day the cook said that the last bag of rice had been opened. This was his answer: "Then the Lord's time for helping us must be close at hand." And so it was. Before the rice was completely gone, fifty pounds ($250) arrived from England. With overflowing hearts the workers went among the patients telling what had occurred and asking, "Have your idols ever delivered you in your troubles or answered prayer after this sort?"

God helped him every time and rescued him every time because he trusted in God. Even today God is ready to help us if we trust Him with all our hearts. No matter what your situation could be, He can help you. Just look to Him.
