Chains Are Gone
Have you ever seen a person with mental illness on the news? Most of the time, we see those people in deprived situations: Chained, confined in a very small place (The worst that I’ve seen yet was in a dog cage charged with electric current), and malnourished. According to the psychiatrists, their illness got worse because of that kind of treatment.
The same situation when dealing with sin, it is like a chain that restrains us. And because it is like a chain, it causes pain when we try to struggle with sin in our own. By what means? Doing religious stuffs, works, works, and works. But at the end of the day, we are still in chains. continuing on struggling, continuing inflicting pain.
As what Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy,” (John 10:10a) that’s what the Devil wants in your life. He wants to steal your future, kill you spiritually, and to destroy your life.
And that’s the reason why Jesus came here, to break the chains of sin in our life. He came here on Earth to destroy its power. How He destroyed it? Through the cross, where the nails had driven in His wrists and feet. And when He died there, the chains are gone. JESUS BROKE THE CHAINS! In other words, there is now freedom from sin!
The solution to the problem of sin? It’s only Jesus. The moment you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the chains will be broken. But wait, there’s more! He will also give you new life.
The chains of sin are gone. To experience freedom, accept Jesus Christ in your heart and experience the fullness of His love.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
– John 10:10
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
– 2 Corinthians 3:17
