Take the Chance

Get out of Jail Free

Free Parking

When you pass Go get 200 dollars

All For Free~

so you feel like a winner every time.

But then you have to

Pay your utilities & Pay your rent &

Pay someone else just because you are visiting their property,

hoping they don't own a couple of hotels~

No longer Free!

And then you take a

Chance Card~

Free or not so Free~

Bank error in your favor collect $200.00~


Pay school tax of 15 dollars~

Not so Free!

So what is it

Free or Not so Free?

This game of Monopoly

This game called life

Free or Not so Free~


You still have to pay your utilities

You still have to pay your rent

You still have to pay your taxes


You still need a

Get of Jail Free card.

Jail is defined as~

"to put someone into a place that they can't get out of." Hmm...

I like that definition.

Have you ever been there~

in a place that you just can't seem to get out of?

When the anxiety is so strong, fear becomes your cell mate.

When hurt is so deep, isolation locks the door..

When bitterness overcomes you, un~forgiveness is your only meal

When the prison you have constructed with your own two hands,

has now become too comfortable to leave.

Jailed into a place that you just can't get out of.

But then you remember

the day you asked


to come into your heart,


He gave you a card for Free~

The Get of Jail Card.

No cost to you

because He paid the cost.

He knows how the game is played,

that is why

He came to make you a winner

When He said,

"The Spirit of the Lord is on Me.

He has put His hand on Me to preach the Good News to poor people.

He has sent Me to heal those with a sad heart.

He has sent Me to tell those who are being held that they can go free.

He has sent Me to make the blind to see and

to free those who are held because of trouble.

He sent Me to tell of the time when men can receive favor with the Lord.” Luke 4:18

Get out of jail free Card~

The card is yours

to use at any time

"So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed." John 8:36

I have one & You have one,

but it has to be used.

and no questions will be asked.

He will

"bestow on them (you) a crown of beauty instead of ashes,

the oil of joy instead of mourning,

and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Now that's how we play the game for


To be set


From whatever jail cell you may be sitting in.

The door is opened


Show your card by

Putting it into practice


"And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:9

And that is how you play the game




"If the Son has set you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
