Notes & Transcripts

One day the prison warden came to me and said, "A representative from the German embassy is here to see you. Get dressed and go down to the gate."

As I walked towards the gate where visitors waited to see prisoners, the lady from the embassy saw me and shouted, "Today I have good news for you! You are being released! The moment you sign this release form you're a free man. YTou'll need to be a little pateient and wait inside the hospital for a few days while arrangements are made to take you to theh airport, but from now on you are a free man!"

I signed the form and returned to the hospital, bubbling with joy. as soon as I reahed my room I took off my prison uniform and threw it on the floor. The guard didn't know about my release and angrily threatened to punish me. I laughted and informed him, "I'm no longer your criminal! I'm free to go!"

I feel so sorry that many Christian live in bondage even though Jesus has signed their release for m with his own blood. when you've been set free, you should act like it!
