Many who’ve accepted Christ are still enslaved to their former lives—they haven’t allowed Christ to release them from their old habits and destructive lifestyles. But He’s waiting to unlock the chains and grant a life of freedom.

Encouraging the disheartened is important for a body of Christians. Enduring tough times is too. And worshipping is equally essential.
