He Still Breaks Chains
Passage: Mark 5:1–5:21
Self-Hate is a "secret epidemic" writes one Huffington Post journalist. Behind the epidemic is the spiritual battle that wages against humanity. Satan's desire is to steal, kill, and destroy as a roaring lion in search of its next meal. Satan speaks lies to humanity that aim at our destruction. Lies such as:
- Lie #1: Death is better than life
- Lie #2: Misery is your destiny
- Lie #3: Hate yourself and hurt yourself
- Lie #4: You are not worth it. You're not worth anything.
Jesus, on the other hand, brings truth that reminds us of God's unfailing and unconditional love that brings freedom, forgiveness, and hope to all who trust in Him. Jesus not only crossed the sea to save a man stuck in bondage, but he crossed heaven and came to earth to save His people from their sins. There is hope in the name of Jesus, because He still breaks chains!
