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
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?
