Unbound

He who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings; and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” John11:44

But the chief priests took counsel that they might put Lazarus to death also; because on account of him many of the Jews were going away, and were believing in Jesus. John12:10-11

Are you free indeed? Jesus came to make us free. But men seek to put you under bondage and lies. Men shackle you to traditions. They submit you to their personal kingdoms. They drag you down with false doctrines and bind you to outward forms of religion. This all hinders your personal relationship with Christ. It is a kind of spiritual death. You are Lazarus; Jesus has made you alive. But you are still bound hand and foot with religious bindings. He wills that what hinders be released from you, so that you can follow the Lamb wherever He goes. He decrees that you be unbound. Thus freed, you can now walk with Him, and sit with Him at the table and eat, as one of His friends. Incredibly, the religious do not approve of your resurrected life. You have been released from their bondage, lies and control. They are not happy that you are now alive again. Because on account of you, people may go away from them and believe in Jesus.
