Collar Bombs and Sin

Tom
August 3, 2011

It was like seeing something out of Hollywood--a suspected bomb either near or attached to a teenage girl. Some unofficial reports claim it was a collar bomb. Whatever it was, apparently she was unable to get away from it. The motive? It's not clear yet, but many suspect that the perpetrator was probably demanding money from the teen's super-wealthy family. This actually just happened--in real life--down in Australia. It's a big story in the news right now. Thankfully, the authorities were able to free the girl. It took 10 hours.

Hostage situations--we hear about them every now and then in the news. Some are elaborate, some not so much. Of course, we can see them in the plots of television shows and movies too.

I've never been held hostage during a bank robbery or home invasion, but I have been held hostage by sin. What about you? Really, everyone on earth either has been or is still being held hostage by sin. Jesus--God's Son, the only Man to live on this earth without sin--is who can set us free.

Those who run with Jesus used to be held hostage by sin, but He has freed them.

Those who aren't rolling with Christ are sadly still slaves to their sin, hostages to this horrible, fallen condition.

I was a hostage to sin, but now I'm free. What about you?
