Lydia Finds True Freedom

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

Lydia Johnson sat behind bars. King Alcohol had enslaved her. In the meantime, the missionary visited her dying son. “Do you know any of her relatives?” the hospital personnel asked.

“Yes,” he said. “I will tell them of his accident.”

Don, the missionary, found Lydia in the jail. “Can I take her with me to visit her dying son?” he asked.

“No,” the jailer answered. “We cannot let you take her. She's the worst alcoholic here.”

“May I go to her cell?” Don requested. “Yes, of course.” He shared the good news about Jesus with her that day.

She said, “I know I'm a sinner. I want Jesus to take away my sin.” Later Lydia worked for Don's Navajo rescue mission. She took whiskey off her own people and poured it down the drain. Jesus Christ had set her free from the bondage to sin.

We hear a lot of talk about freedom today. People say, “I'm free to do what I want to do. I have my own rights. Do your own thing. Do what feels good.” However, the license to sin brings one in bondage to sin.

Lydia never intended to end up in a jail cell. She did not plan to lie in her own vomit in a gutter. She did not intend to ruin her liver, her brains and other parts of her body. King Alcohol laughed at her and claimed her for a slave.

Any sin you name can make one its prisoner. One sees the lights, the glitter, and it attracts him, but he ends up a slave.

Remember, Jesus said, “One who keeps sinning becomes its slave.” Sin is habit-forming and bad habits enslave people.

Lydia found true freedom when she came to Christ and served Him. Jesus said, “One who knows the truth will be set free by it.” Jesus sets free from the bondage of sin.

The Saviour knows our sinful habits and longs to set us free. He desires to fill us with the Holy Spirit and give us victory over sin, the world and the devil. He wants us to give ourselves to Him and depend utterly upon Him. Will you trust Christ as Lydia did?

Oh God, please set me free from sin's bondage. Please give me victory over my sinful habits. In Jesus' name. Amen.
