Escape from Your Prison of Sin

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries3 Minutes

If you’ve ever played the popular board game, Monopoly, you’ve probably received a “Get Out of Jail Free” card which was your ticket to instant freedom in spite of any penalty that had been assessed.

Although many believers don’t realize it, God has given each of us a “Get Out of Jail Free” card — Jesus’ death on the Cross makes it possible for us to escape from our prison of sin and death!

People try all sorts of other things to overcome their feelings of imprisonment, but only Jesus’ blood can truly cleanse our sins and set us free.

The Freedom It Brings!

If God has forgiven your shortcomings and sins, why should you be imprisoned by them? If the devil keeps sowing condemnation in your life by bringing up your painful sinful past, remember this: The devil is a liar!

God’s Word says. “There is therefore now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1)!

On the Cross, Jesus bore all your fears, guilt, and shame so you don’t have to bear them any longer! Once you grasp this truth, you’ll not only be free from the jailhouse of your past, but also free to go forward in God and experience a new beginning in Him.

What a blessing to receive God’s “Get Out of Jail Free” card! You can toss that guilt, fear, shame, or condemnation out of your life, out of your mind, and out of your spirit — and come into God’s presence with praise and worship!

Don’t Go Back to Jail — Try Forgiveness Instead

It breaks God’s heart that many of His children have “gone back to jail” after He graciously forgave their sins. For whatever reason, some of us allow unforgiveness toward others to bring them back into a spiritual prison. Don’t let that happen to you.

Instead, follow the example that the Lord has done for you in Jesus’ death on the Cross:

  • He showed His compassion for you
  • He forgave your debt of sin
  • He released you from the prison of your past

So many people today are being tormented by their past; by their failures and mistakes or by the ways they’ve been victimized by another person.

If you find yourself in a place of torment, God wants to release you, but the key to your prison is in your own hand. Why not take time today to spend an intimate moment with the Lord, asking Him to work His forgiveness in your heart?
