Read Isaiah 60—62
I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them. Isaiah 61:8

Every seven years, the Jews were to observe a “sabbatical year” and allow the land to rest. After seven sabbaticals, they were to celebrate the fiftieth year as the “Year of Jubilee.” During that year, all debts were to be caceled, all land returned to the original owners, the slaves were to be freed, and everybody was to be given a fresh new beginning.

If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, you are living today in a spiritual “Year of Jubilee.” You have been set free from bondage; your spiritual debt to the Lord has been paid; you are living in “the acceptable year of the LORD” (Isa. 61:2 KJV; also quoted in Luke 4:19 KJV). Instead of the ashes of mourning, you have a crown on your head (Isa. 61:3); for He has made you a king (Rev. 1:6 KJV). You have been anointed with the oil of the Holy Spirit, and you wear a garment of righteousness (Isa. 61:3).

Something to Ponder
In what ways do you demonstrate your freedom from bondage or release from spiritual debt?
