'taking action with Christ'

#10 Unshackler

  The best way to take action with Christ is to accept his gift of freedom. Jesus is the ultimate freedom-giver, the supreme 'unshackler' that allows us to finally put down all of our "hurts, habits, and hand-ups," as Pastor Rick Warren frequently says. Jesus gives us the invitation to give anything and everything that causes pain in our lives to Him...once and for all.

  There's a misguided saying, "never get revenge, just get even twice." This may feel fair for the people that have wronged you but it leaves you carrying the weight of revenge. The person that embezzled from you, the spouse that left you, the loss of a loved one, there's no end of life events where you collapse under the emotional weight and say, 'This just isn't fair.' But God asks us to let go.

  To fully take action with Christ, you have to perfect letting go. How you handle your hurts, habits, and hang-ups defines how well you're accepting Jesus' offer to give it all to Him. Life is full of wounded people that are dragging ball and chain through their life. Heavy, weighed down, slowed down, and left behind, you must let it go. Allow Jesus to unshackle you and deliver freedom!


"I love you Jesus, Amen!"
