BB&JT: Plea and thank you for ratings and review & for spreading the word via social media and word of mouth…

BB –  We are talking today about … The Cost Of Freedom”…

So JT What does that title bring up to your mind?

  1. Bob – POINT: Freedom is a great word… and implies the state of great blessing. With the blessing of freedom comes the cost of getting and keeping that freedom.

 

Hebrews 2:14–17 (ESV) — 14 Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. 16 For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham. 17 Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
