Sin is the way the devil has a hold over you. You are bound by sin that is in your life. You are weighed down so much that you are distressed and battered; and you may feel that you don’t know where to turn. Jesus Christ can loose those sins that are weighing you down and free you from your sins, if you would only allow him too. Someone may be so broken down that they don’t know where to turn. Life may not seem so joyful anymore and you are losing hope quickly. Trust in God to deliver you from the bonds of sin and allow him to work in your life. He can turn your heaviness to joy and sorrow unto laughter.
When a person has un-confessed sin, they are bound by it. God wants us to be free from sins so badly that he gave us son Jesus to bear our sins and iniquities on our behalf, so that we could then be freed from the bonds of sin. Isaiah 53:4-5 tells us that Jesus “bore our sins, sickness, weakness, distress … sorrows and pains.” That passage then goes on to declare that “by His stripes, we are healed.” God can cleanse you and rid those things that are trying to steal your joy and those things that are trying to defeat you. When you turn from sin, Satans grasp weakens and you are no longer bound by it. Acts 26:18 says, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. When you become a child of God, he cleanses you from all unrighteousness and frees you from sin. Romans 6:22 says, But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. If you haven’t turned from your sins, now is the day to accept Christ as your Savior and allow him to loosen the bonds of sin from your life.
If you are one that is burdened, grieved and are willing to turn in the towel, I urge you to trust in Jesus to deliver you from this anguish. Ask him into your life and you can be set free.
Galatians 4:3-Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
Galatians 5:1-Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Hebrews 2:3-How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
Hebrews 2:14,15- Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Romans 6:11-Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:12-Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
2 Corinthians 7:10-For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
