No Longer Slaves To Fear!
– by Grant & Theunisina Neyt
Last month we celebrated Passover, or as commonly called, Easter. We celebrated the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and everything that accompanies this momentous event. Hebrews 2:14 tells us that because we are human, Jesus Christ became human so that He could taste death. Through His death, Jesus was able to defeat satan. He defeated satan by defeating satan’s greatest weapon, death. In addition, He: “released those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” – Hebrews 2:15. Wow, satan is defeated, the power of death over us is defeated, and we are released from the bondage of the fear of death. We don’t have to fear death or be bound by this fear.
We are certain of who we are, Who has our back, our purpose, and our eternal destination. We are children of God, God has our backs, our purpose is found in Him, and our eternal home is in Heaven. This is surely Good News! There are so many people bound by this fear and we have the answer. His Name is Jesus. How can we keep this Good News quiet?
