“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Have you ever felt chained to something? Maybe not physically, but perhaps mentally, emotionally or even spiritually. It’s easy to let something or someone control us to the point where we are restrained beyond our original desire. Regardless of whatever has you chained today; you can be released of its hold on you. You can be free through the Truth!
Our church has an addiction recovery ministry for those who struggle with being chained to a substance or situation. We are all addicted to something. It may not be alcohol or drugs; but it could be social media, television, the Internet, or even food. We need not judge those who are addicted to a substance, when we ourselves have allowed something else to grab ahold of us. One night as I was painting in another room of the church, I overheard the congregational hymn “Victory In Jesus” being sung. The sounds of those who were once addicted to something in this world were singing at the top of their lungs that they had found victory in Jesus Christ alone. It was convicting.
I heard an old, old story,
How a Saviour came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary
To save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning,
Of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins
And won the victory!
O victory in Jesus,
My Saviour, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.
Eugene Bartlett, 1939
No matter what struggle we are facing in our lives, we can find victory in Him!
