Off the HOOK!
Every believer knows and loves this scripture. But at the time it was spoken, the hearers didn’t appreciate it at all. Their reply to Jesus was, “We’ve never been in bondage to anybody, what do you mean by saying, You will set us free?” Jesus taught that anyone who commits and practices sin is a slave to it. Furthermore, a slave is temporary. Only the sons remain forever.
Imagine habitual sin as a hook in your soul with a line anchored back to darkness, death and destruction. No matter how long you linger around the church or in the light, sooner or later the enemy of your soul will pull your chain and drag you back to your old life, or better said, your old death.
Jesus gave us the key to break the chain and unhook from every sin. It’s simple: abide in His Word. Have you been in the Word today? It’s your key to a life completely off the hook!
Success and Progress!
