  • Devo for July 27

    Now You Know Why


    Scripture: John 8:32
    "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" NKJV

    During his years as premier of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev distanced himself from the famous atrocities of Joseph Stalin. Stalinís atrocities included 1.5 million Gulag deaths and Siberian Deportations for 3.0 million. His ruthless tactics and inept handling of the economy caused incredible famines. Some historians place the total number of Russian citizens that met their demise at the hands of Stalin --- nearly 9 million --- not including those who died during the famines.

    Khrushchev censured Stalin in a public meeting after his death. He was interrupted by a shout from a heckler in the audience. "You were one of Stalin's colleagues. Why didn't you stop him?"

    "Who said that?" thundered Khrushchev. An agonizing silence followed as nobody in the room dared move a muscle.

    Then Khrushchev replied quietly, "Now you know why."

    The Lord Jesus Christ became a man and came to earth in the reverse of what Stalin stood for. Stalin wanted all power and control in his hands. He did anything and everything possible through fear, intimidation and brutality to make it happen. Jesus came to earth as the perfect form of love and freedom. The Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for you and me to have the freedom to chose. Chose life eternal with Jesus in heaven or chose death and the torment of hell.

    Hundreds of millions of people in Russia were in bondage to an evilness that relatively few have witnessed on earth. They had no choice.

    Jesus offers his perfect love and freedom to everyone who chooses HIM no matter what political or territory boundaries are drawn.

    We are free to choose. Make your choice wisely; Eternity is a very long time!

    Prayer: Father my choice is clear --- I choose the love and freedom of Jesus Christ. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
