Captivated By Freedom

//Shout it aloud, do not hold back.
    Raise your voice like a trumpet.//
 Isaiah 58.1a

//“Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke?//
Isaiah 58.6

To loose the bonds of wickedness. 
To undo the heavy burdens.
To let the oppressed go free.
To break every yolk. 
That's what my Jesus does. 

He throws open the pains of guilt. 
He terrifies the bars of oppression. 
He lets loose the weight of iniquity. 
He tears the enslaved out of slavery. 
He shakes off the weighty poles of sin. 
He shoots forth the discouraged and bruised into Life & Liberty.
He pulls the trapped out from under every heavy pole of oppression.
He tears apart and drags away the bars holding us from Freedom.

He is Freedom.

//It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.//
Galatians 5.1
