Conntecting the Dots

Live Like You’re Free

We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. Romans 6:6-7 (NLT)


In Christian lingo, we speak about chains hindering us from living victorious lives. Unforgiveness is one. Every link grows stronger when our minds replay an offense.


Fear is another. The fear of inadequacy keeps us tethered and unable to go beyond our comfort zone. The fear of rejection hinders us from the freedom that comes if we’re honest about our past hurts or present struggles. 


Pride, envy, jealousy, misplaced priorities—they’re all unwanted chains. But Jesus came to snap them. Are you living from that truth today? Are you free?


Action Step: Create a paper chain. Label each link with the sin that’s holding you captive. Now break the chain and throw it away to symbolize your freedom in Christ.


Father, thank You for the freedom that is mine through Christ. Help me live out that truth from this day forward. Amen.



Zach Williams sings a song that reminds us of Jesus’s power to snap the chains that hold us captive to sin.
