The answer is Yes; if you’ve said Yes to Jesus!
Philippians 3:12 (AV)
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Paul made the most of his apprehensions and arrests (He had several).
Ephesians 6:10–20 (The Message)
10 And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. 11 So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. 12 This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.
13 Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. 14 Truth, righteousness, 15 peace, 16 faith, 17 and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. 18 In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out. 19 And don’t forget to pray for me. Pray that I’ll know what to say and have the courage to say it at the right time, telling the mystery to one and all, the Message that I, 20 jailbird preacher that I am, am responsible for getting out.
Question for the Comment Section Below:
Do ordinary Christians deal with apprehensions, arrests, and imprisonments. Please share your thoughts.
Both believers and unbelievers can become addicted / trapped / enslaved /imprisoned to many kinds of sin / evil / damaging choices. Every sin is difficult to free yourself from. God has made it simple, but it is still difficult. We “throw off the things that hinder and the sin” Heb. 12:1-4 and begin to run the race marked out for us with perseverance, fixing our eyes on Jesus…” Jesus had to do all this and succeeded perfectly. We can grow and train into this race “marked out for us”.
Thanks, Tim! Good word!
Jesus came to set the captive free. Paul was free every time he was imprisoned! Ironically, that’s when some of his best epistles/letters/books of the Bible were written!
We ARE free as we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
