“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:15-16 NIV.

One of the most profound lyrics I've ever heard, "...I'm free from the world and me..." (Beckah Shae "Simply Free"). When Yeshua asked Peter "who do you say I Am?" Simon Peter relented his love for the world, - and his life - by proclaiming "You ARE the Son of the Living G-d!" And even when he was martyred, Peter chose to be free from the world, not feeding into the fleshly desire to relent to his captures...

...We are all faced with the decision to either walk in His light, and be free from the world, or feed the flesh and accept sin into our lives and lifestyles. It seems daunting to get rid of what we once thought were our securities and nets in case we fell, but the only true security is in Messiah, Yeshua, and when we get rid of those faulty false nets, we can freely recline in His arms and experience true safety and love.
