Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
John 8:34,36 -NLT
I know a man whose love of money enslaved him in a self-destructive trajectory resulting in lawlessness, eventually landing him in jail. He was shackled to chemical and sensual addictions long before he was arrested, though. The false promise of worldly lusts leaves a person spiritually bankrupt, bound in a sin-debtor’s prison. Jesus came to free us captives by paying the penalty for every single wrongdoing—past, present and future. The Apostle Paul knew this kind of freedom. While he was detained in a Roman prison for preaching Christ, an earthquake shook the jail and released him from his chains. Why didn’t he run away like all the other freed prisoners? Pail was already free because he’d been released in his heart by Jesus.
Are you living in this kind of freedom today?🚦
