Last week our team interviewed a couple for an upcoming article. They are both Christians, he is a Messianic Jew. While the article will be published soon, she said something that continues to shape my thinking.
Our discussions were leaning towards living a life of purpose and passion. When discussing why so many struggle with that topic, she made a profound statement.
“Many Christians are like baby elephants being trained for the circus. For the first few months of life, they are chained to the ground. Over time, when the chain is removed, the elephant does not realize it and remains obedient to its invisible constraint. Even when completely free, it does not realize its freedom.”
We are free! No more chains. Don’t let old restraints confine you. Walk away from chains. In the powerful name of Jesus, we are free indeed!
