Apostle Grace Lubega
Luke 13:15 (KJV): The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?”
From our theme scripture, in giving the analogy of loosing an ox or ass and leading it to water, Jesus explains one vital principle of the life of the Spirit: we are FREED to RUN to the WATERS.
One cannot speak of freedom in the things of God without making reference to ACCESS TO WATER.
This is not physical water. Water represents the Word of God.
Ephesians 5:26 speaks of the cleansing of the Church by the washing of water with the Word.
So, the true testimony of a person who is free is that they HUNGER for the Word of God.
It is okay to seek healing, deliverance, increase or multiplication in ministry but act like you are free!
Always look to the Word of God and make it a part of your daily life.
There is nothing as mighty and powerful as the Word of God; it is the FOUNDATION of God’s promises, the BEDROCK of our faith and the SOURCE of our freedom.
Study it like your life depends on it because it does!
Apply it like your life depends on it, because it does!
Never let your eyes depart from it, keep it in the midst of your heart!
Never compromise on giving the Word the attention it deserves.
Pray in it, confess it, seek God in it, worship in it, and pay the price to grow in it.
That is a free Christian! Glory to God!

The true testimony of a person who is free is that they HUNGER for the Word of God.
PRAYER: Father God, your Word is priceless! When I had nothing, I had the Word. When I had it all, I still had the Word. This Word has kept me, preserved me, taught me, led me, instructed me and shown me how to see the world. Like David, I rejoice over it as one who has found great spoil. It forms the pattern of every area of my life. By it, I don’t only touch but I change my generation. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
