Free Indeed

Peters Chains

When Scott and I had the pleasure of visiting Rome six years ago, we went to Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli. In this church, you will see these chains. They are said to be Peter’s from his imprisonment. As I stood and looked at these chains, the word “freedom” came to mind. While Peter was bound physically, he was no longer a slave to sin.

Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. Rom. 6:16-18

Today, I am praising God that the chains of sin have been broken and I am no longer a slave to sin, but rather I have freedom and life in Christ Jesus my Lord!
