“Remember the prisoners as if chained with them –
those who are mistreated – since you yourselves are
in the body also.” (Heb 13:3 NKJV)
Around you are the wounded bodies of people, crying out for help. As
you walk by you see the confusion and despair in their eyes. Blood is
gushing from their hearts and they’re fighting just to take the next breath
that will somehow keep them alive. It’s almost as if you can touch the
darkness that wants to engulf them and drive them off to death. How much
longer will they be able to bear this?
For years they’ve been locked up, bound by chains, and deprived from
the Source of Life. You see their eyes. Dead. Even though some of them
are smiling. What a strange contradiction? They’ve been imprisoned for so
long that it became the only life they know. And astonishingly enough,
they embraced it.
Suddenly you notice that with every step you take there comes a stirring
in your heart, a refusal to accept what you see, a hatred for evil that is
causing this. Haven’t you been through this hell before?
But Jesus set you free. As He did for all! Can’t they see the doors are
open? Haven’t they heard the enemy has been destroyed? Were they not
given a voice that will cry out, enough is enough? Enough of this shame,
enough of this poverty, enough of these diseases, enough of this
oppression, enough of this prison life!
Don’t they realise it’s only the lies of a defeated enemy that still keep
them in those prisons?
“I pray for you constantly asking the Glorius Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you wisdom to see clearly and really understand who Christ is and all that He has done fo you.”
