So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
Bondage is something that we are Christians are not meant to experience. Jesus came here, walked with us and died for our freedom. He sacrificed His life so that we may be free to inherit His kingdom. We continually tie ourselves us creating our self made bondage.
So, many things tie us down, guilt, greed, envy, desire, temptation, and self-worth just to name a few. Our worldly desires to have everything or to do things that we know are better keeps us trapped in our self-made bondage. Or coveting what others have or giving into things that tempt us or our flesh-like desires keeps us trapped.
We were meant to be free, not trapped. We were intended to be released by the love of Christ for us, yet we keep opening our box, stepping in and nailing it shut.
There is no freedom without Jesus. We need to hold on to Him and His love and keep us from creating our trap for ourselves. Devoting, worshipping, praying daily with Him can help free us from our temptation.
Do you see your self-made bondage? Are you ready to be free?
