He Unlocked Our Cages

Jesus took the keys of sin and death 

He rose and unlocked our cages 

It is up to us to walk out and follow 

He unlocked the chains to sin around us 

It is up to us to take them off and let go 

We can try to follow Him while holding onto the chains of sin, dragging them behind us 

Or we can let go and let the chains fall to the ground and leave them on the trail and look forward, straight ahead to Jesus, to heaven 

Do we trust that God will give us the strength? 

What do we have on earth that is so important? 

Dust in comparison to what we have in God 

Who we have in heaven can no longer be hurt by Satan or the world  

They are safe  

Forever 

All our possessions on earth will fade and blow away like dust, but God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit are for eternity 

What greater friend, brother, Father, King can we have in our life, that knew us and created us before that great and mighty Day, that first Day, He spoke? 

Who else could we ever need?
