Chain Breaking Savior – I am glad that Jesus died to break the chains of sin and I am no longer a slave to sin. Zach Williams said it great in his song, Chain Breaker.
Chain Breaking Savior
In a previous blog post, total depravity, you would see that we are dead to sin. We cannot do anything to save ourselves and we are in need of a Savior! That is where Jesus Christ becomes our chain breaking Savior. We saved us from being slaves to sin. He didn’t save us to continue living in open sin. Plus, there is no license to sin either.
Peter’s chains undone
6 And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison. 7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands. Acts 12:6-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
Paul and Silas chains undone
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.Acts 16:26 New King James Version (NKJV)
We cannot get out of the chains without help! No matter where we are when we are bound by the enemy, God will unbind us. Jesus died on the cross to deliver us. When we are in chains we are bound to what binds us. Sin is what binds us. It also separates us from God. We cannot do anything when we are bond by chains. Chains restrict the ability to serve, fellowship and serve God.
When we are broken of the chains, God wants us to go! Go spread the Good News! Share the Gospel! He also wants us to Sin No More. That doesn’t mean we are sinless, but we should desire to sin less. God makes a Christian unsuccessful to sin. He gives us the Holy Spirit to convict us. Not to mention, He gave us new desires too! Conviction brings about repentance, turning away from those desires. These new desires is what breaks our chains so we don’t go back to the bondage of sin.
