If you want to set prisoners free, you must go to prison. Christ did. He came here. He was a prisoner in his own body (freely and by design) so that He could be with us and fulfill Isaiah 61, which He said in Luke 4.
If you and I hang around people who are just like us as believers and never spend any time with those who are not freed yet, we will never make the impact He intends us to make. We also are need to make certain that we ourselves are not imprisoned in our church culture, or in religious tradition, or in ritual – thinking the only things that matter happen in a building on Sundays. There are prisoners in the Sunday aquarium. As you move about your Sunday church, do you see anyone who needs set free? They come Sunday after Sunday and are not free in Him. They do not seem to even know Him as a person. They have no idea what “abiding” looks like. To them, John 15 is a collection of words on a page. They do not know the freedom and joy of life abundant which Christ mentions in John 10:10.
Are you a prisoner or someone who sets prisoners free? You are one or the other.
From God’s Word:John 15
