Sid Bridges shares with us from 1 John 5:1-12. Focusing on “the incarnate God”, he reminds us that God is for all of us, He is interested in our story. Using the Old Testament story of the Israelites we are reminded that life in Christ is like life in the Promised Land – one in which we have freedom of choice.  The commands of God are given to help us live well with that freedom – thriving and blessing others.  The commands help us navigate freedom and provide for our rest.  Faith is meant to be freedom – a framework for flourishing and being fully alive.
