Whatever you are chained to,
Jesus Christ has come to set you free
Whatever pieces of your past you hold tight to,
There's a savior who paid your debt
So you can let those memories be
Whatever you are so used to be defined by,
The son of God has come to speak truth to those lies.
And i know all this to be right because he did all that for me.
So what are you chained to?
Are you chained to who you used to be?
The things you did, the facts you hid,
The things the people who look up to you don't know about,
That you have no desire to admit.
Do you live in a prison of secrets?
Are you chained to what people once did to you?
The memories of people that mistreated
their power and said some terrible things to you?
Did some terrible things to you?
Did some things that would break
God's heart but put the blame back to you?
Do you live in prison of abuse?
Are you chained to what people expect of you?
The expectations that you can't shake?
That everyday steal a piece of you?
Do you live in a prison of not
feeling good enough no matter what you do?
Are you chained to religion?
The lists of do's and don'ts that you've
accepted so you can get by with just the bare minimum?
The man-made ways that you've exalted hoping you could earn salvation?
Do you live in prison of traditionalism without a real revelation?
Are you chained to your own sins?
Feeling like you know what you want to do?
What is right to do, but still you do the opposite?
Do you live in a prison of your own flesh?
That you feel you are stuck in?
What are you chained to?
Coz i don't know about you
But I've been chained to all these things at one point or another.
All this things have had control over me.
I've been controlled by my desires and lived a life of hypocrisy.
I've obeyed my flesh in the name of
proving none-one else was in-charge of me!
And i felt comfort in the rituals of religion.
So i can convince God," Hi at least am doing my duty"
And I've lived in prison most years i have been living.
Coz i never truly got what Jesus did for me.
I did not get that he did not come to restrict me.
I did not get that he did not come as a
police officer throwing a set of rules at me.
I did not get that he did not come to condemn me.
But rather because of sins, I was condemned already.
So Jesus came to be a friend
To give his life to set his friends free.
I did not get that Jesus coming, dying,
being buried and rising now changes everything
for though we have been chained to so many things.
Other than used to being a slave, Jesus said that's Unnecessary.
I am creating a new way,
i came died and rose to life so you could accept you
too can resurrect. And you can have a new life in me.
Your Chains are who you were, they are not who you are supposed to be.
Romans 8 states clearly that if we are in Christ then our bodies are
dead because of sin,
but our spirit is alive for we have been made right with God.
The same Spirit of the one who raise
Jesus from the dead is now living in us.
So the same God that raised Christ from
the dead will give life to our bodies too.
He will set us free from the chains of of sins too.
He will set us free from the pains of our past too.
He will set us free from who we were and give us a new life too.
Because if God is not enough to raise us from the dead.
If he is not enough to save us from our lives of sins.
If he's not enough to redeem us from all the places we've been?
Then he couldn't have been enough to resurrect Christ.
But since he's not,
since the tomb is empty and no
Saviors's bones are laying on the graveyard.
We can know and rest assured death has long been conquered.
So let those Chains fall to the floor may the
medal of our suckles echo loudly around the world.
We were once slaves but are under bound no more.
We were once dead but are under sins no more.
We are alive, we are free,
we are children of the king and we belong to the Lord.
