“When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.” Colossians 2:13-14

Brothers, Men of Honor-

Would you be willing to push pause on your life for just a few seconds?  Let these words sink in for just a minute from the movie Braveheart.

"Sons of Scotland...I am William Wallace."
"William Wallace is seven feet tall."
"Yes, I've heard. Kills men by the hundreds, and if he were here, he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse.

I am William Wallace and I see a whole army of my countrymen,

(insert your name, your brother's nameshere in defiance of tyranny (standing up against the Enemy of our hearts).

You've come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do without freedom? Will you fight?!"

(Will you fight? Will you let the Father's voice penetrate into your circumstances today?)
"Fight against that, no, we will run, and we will live . (Insert your story, your reasons for not engaging)"

"Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live, for at least a while, (The Father is saying this to you "yes you will live, at least a while")
And dying in your beds, many years from nowwould you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance,

(think of the years of regret, the broken relationships, the intimacy forfeited) just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies

(The Enemy of your heart bent on your destruction and separation from the Father's plans for you), that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!"

You are free men, bought, ransomed and paid in full, the written code against you has been canceled. Colossians 2:14)
