Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31, 32 NLT)

I love sailing. I live on the ocean and watch the sail boats freely move along in the wide open waters without restraint subject only to the mercy of the wind.

People are like vessels afloat in the sea.
Most are tied up but a few are set free.
A cross and three nails.
Has put the wind in their sails.
To leave behind sinful waves.
That once beat them like slaves.
Because God sacrificed his Son.
All the effects of sin are undone.
And the shining light of a new day.
Illuminates these vessels to sail away.
-Adrian Lunick
