Recently we heard from the CDC that masks were no longer needed for those who have been vaccinated. I don’t know whether you agree with how the CDC has handled masks or not but my point is this. Several people do not want to take off their masks. They believe that the mask is keeping them safe in spite of what science is telling them. This is a great illustration of life. We have certain destructive behaviors that give us a sense of safety. We hold on to them believing that they are protecting us from the pain inside of us. Jesus came to set the captive free. In fact, in John 8:36 says, So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
We hear this verse but something tells us that we can’t give up our behavior. Like the mask, it gives us a false sense of security. Like the mask, it is actually hurting us more with it on then taking it off. Anything that we rely or depend on more than God is sin. We trust in it more then we trust in God. God wants you and I to experience true freedom. We can only do that when we rely on God more than we rely on anything, including ourselves.

P.S. Don’t let the mask be your focus.
