Ephesians 4:1-3 (KJV)


In today’s society, a prison, or the thought of being a prisoner, is not something for which we strive.  Being imprisoned means having your freedoms stripped away from you and your life minimized to strict guidelines and duties. In secular terms, a prisoner is confined, limited, and deprived of freedom against their will. In the Bible, Apostle Paul proclaims to the people at Ephesus that he is prisoner of the Lord and to walk worth of the vocation from which he is called. Apostle Paul speaks to them as a spiritual imprisonment to the Lord. Though far from being stripped of his freedom, Paul completely surrenders to the Lord and focuses strictly on the Lord’s direction.

Like Apostle Paul, when we get sanctified we become prisoners to Jesus Christ and servants to righteousness. He equips us with His spirit, if we yield to His direction for our lives. Only when we willingly yield our lives to the Lord, we are no longer slaves to Satan, and can gain all the Lord has to offer. I ask you this week, are you a prisoner to Jesus Christ? Have you made a full consecration to Him? Have you died to self and does His spirit rein in your life? I pray you do.

Ephesians 4:1-3 states, “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Bro. Matt Collins
