Do you know anyone living in bondage? They are all around us. Sin is bondage, and sometimes that bondage is depending upon rules and ideas – rules used by Satan to bind people.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
Here is a bit of the meaning encompassed in those amazing words. This is found at Lifeway.com.
Jesus makes one of the most amazing inspirational claims in history. Consider for a moment the incredible hope expressed in the promise that Jesus can set people free. Unless you have lived a sheltered life, you have probably experienced an enslaved soul or have known loved ones who struggle to break free from ungodly chains. These ungodly chains my be easy to identify like an immoral addiction, or the chains may be more “acceptable” like fear, greed, poverty, worldliness, doubt, anger, bitterness, legalism, racism, insecurity, despair, and depression. Whatever category you classify your slavery, the result is the same – a failure to experience the abundant life promised by following Christ. To those living in bondage, Jesus offers freedom!
There are those who are not even allowed to understand the wonder of the amazing grace of our God because it interferes with their religious doctrine. Please pray for religious people who are living in darkness.
