Imprisoned!
Captured by His love

I would like to think I am a total prisoner of the Love of Christ. However, in reality I don't believe I am quite there, as of now.

The Apostle Paul. He was a total prisoner of the Love of Christ. With hatred for Jesus and this new "sect" in his murderous heart, he set out destroy them. But then the great encounter occurred as a radiant blaze of LIGHT knocked him to the ground to be forever a prisoner of LOVE - one of the greatest love stories ever told. ~For to me to live is Christ~ he would boldly proclaim to the world.

Someday... I hope to be a complete prisoner, gladly enclosed forever in by the bands of His wondrous love. Every time I get angry with God in confusion and pain He waits...knowing that my oft-stubborn heart will eventually ask the question again ~ Lord, to whom shall I go? Thou hast the words of eternal life~ gladly, captured and irresistibly drawn in again by His passionate love for me.

There was a tiny, wild bird that flew into our house one day. It began to desperately fling its little body against the walls of our home, captured in a place it did not want to be. The tiny little creation of God could not have known it was imprisoned within the walls of a home of someone who cries over the suffering of God's creation. I managed to somehow capture it and take it to the vet for healing. When I called regarding its condition the following day it had been set free.

He will let us go free, if we choose. But when we instead decide to become a prisoner of the Love of Christ that is when our true freedom begins.


And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior's blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain-
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

And Can it Be?
Charles Wesley

If only we'd trust His gentle hands and not fly from His approach... we could truly be set free! May His children let His healing love set them free! Wonderful parallel, Virginia!

Great anointed devotional with such a Beautiful inspiring message"He will let us go free, if we choose. But when we instead decide to become a prisoner of the Love of Christ that is when our true freedom begins." Great Encouraging words!!! When we are extremely in Love with our Saviour there are no bars that the regenerated heart sees for our Freedom is found in Serving Him and Loving Him!!!
