Jesus Wants to Redeem the Saints

"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom" -2 Corinthians 3:17
Jesus Christ came to seek and save the lost. He came to call not the righteous, but sinners to repentance. He came to deliver us from the dominion of darkness to the everlasting Kingdom of light. He came to break the chains of sin that we may experience liberty in His grace.

As followers of Christ, we are called to proclaim the good news of the Gospel to the world. How can we, however, proclaim freedom for the prisoners when we have not been freed ourselves?

The Christian walk is not about what we can do for God. It is about what God does through us by the power of His Spirit. All chains of sin are unbreakable by our power; by His power, however, we are more than conquerors.

The same power that raised Jesus from the dead also lives within us. The Lord is fully sovereign, and NO sin or stronghold of Satan is unbreakable by His power.

Dear friends, Jesus Christ died upon the cross not merely to forgive our sins—HE DIED TO SET US FREE. And so, let us seek Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us. May He reedem us into His likeness and deliver us from bondage that we may experience true freedom.
