Are You Bound In Sin?

If you are bound by a life-controlling sin, don’t suffer in silence. Salvation includes freedom from spiritual bondage.

Some people are transformed overnight when they surrender their lives to Jesus. They throw their drugs out the window, apologize to the people they’ve wronged, break off unhealthy relationships and make a 180-degree turnaround. I love dramatic conversions.

But the process of change is slower for most of us. While the new birth is indeed an instantaneous experience, salvation is not. We aren’t just “saved” in an emotional moment at a church altar; we are “being saved” on a daily basis.

Like Lazarus, who emerged from his tomb wrapped in grave clothes, we can experience the miracle of salvation and yet remain bound.

Jesus told those standing near Lazarus, “Unbind him, and let him go” John 11:44

We too need someone to unwrap us. Go to a Christian and ask them to help unwrap you from the sin you are bound in.

Only then will you be free.
