Matthew 27:21 When the governor asked again, “Which of these two shall I release to you?” the crowd shouted back their reply: “Barabbas!”

 HAVING IDENTIFIED THE PEOPLE I HAVE HARMED,
I WILL NOW GO AND MAKE RESTITUTION TO THEM.
UNLESS TO DO IS GOING TO CAUSE THEM OR OTHER PAIN OR SUFFERING.

Who have we decided to let HOLD US CAPTIVE? Welcome to Step Nine! In this step, it is in our hands to send marching those who oppress us. We can continue to tolerate them, or we can make a conscious decision to break our ties with them.

The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.  John 10:10

 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

  •  It is within our willpower to delegate the Devil to the defeat he is under from the victorious Christ.
  • We can give him marching orders by allowing Jesus Christ to be our Lord, Our Savior, and our ONE TRUE HIGHER POWER.

Through the Grace of Jesus Christ:

 SPIRITUALLY FREE
If the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. John 8:36

GRACEFULLY FREE
All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that’s the end of it. Grace, because God is putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life—a life that goes on and on and on, a world without end. Romans 5:21

 FREE TO LIVE RIGHT
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. Galatians 5:1

 WE ARE EITHER PRISONER OF LOVE
OR A CAPTIVE OF
THE ENEMY. HELD AS COMPULSIVE LOSERS

 

PRAYER Lord today I choose a release from compulsive losing and accept Your freedom from those I have permitted to hold me captive.
