It is for Freedom that Christ has Set you Free.
Freedom is better than captivity, yet we seem to all choose captivity in difference areas in our lives. Whether it be in unhealthy relationships, continuing to stay in an addiction, letting our thought life rule etc. Yet Scripture tells us that 'it is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery' (Galatians 5.1)
Living in cages are not the best version of our selves. Just take a zoo for example. The eagles in a Zoo are required to have their wings clipped to ensure that they cant fly to their potential. It actually might be harmful for them if they do. We can be amazed during a bird show at the zoo, at their agility and the tricks this incredible bird is able to perform but its not until you see them in the wild soaring way above all other birds that you realise how much more they were made for. I was once sitting out the back of my parents property. A slow moving rabbit started to hop by in the distance. Out of no where an eagle came down and swooped and attacked the rabbit, he won and took the rabbit away to eat. All that was left was some rabbit fur… It was incredible to watch and made me realise the eagles power and might in the pecking order of the wild. So guess what? We are more than conquerors through Jesus, we are free, so why would anyone choose captivity? Well captives do get fed, even though its generally a very plain boring diet, they are safe in cages away from the elements of what life has to throw at them, captivity is familiar to captives those 'four' walls can almost become a comfort but its not Gods best for us.
What would you love to be free from? What would you love to be fully free to do?
You don’t need to be held in bondage any longer. Jesus has set you free. Take Him at His word, read the bible and ask the Holy Spirit to show you the areas that you are being held in captivity and He will make a way.
