Taken Captive For Us

Several of my children are in the midst of performing the play, “Beauty and the Beast.” At one point in the story, Belle’s father is imprisoned by the Beast. Because of her great love for her father, Belle offers to take his place in prison, so that he could go free.

This is what Jesus has done for us. Because of our sin, we have been taken captive by the devil. And yet, because of God’s great love for us, Jesus was taken captive for us, so that by faith we could go free.

“Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. … But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian” (Galatians 3:23, 25).
