Colossians 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
Jesus is our Rescuer! He came to rescue us from the power of darkness. The enslavement of sin and death. As christians, we receive the power (dunimas) of the Holy Spirit. As enslaved unbelievers, all are under the power (exousia) or exercise of darkness. We would do the devils beckening because we were enslaved to it. We couldnt break those chains! We didnt even know how or most case even desire to. BUT then Jesus, rescued us and even revealed to us the need to be delivered. Now, thats love. The reason I hold so tightly to the Lord now is because I see my endless need for my Savior. Without Christ, Im an enslaved sinner heading to an eternal hell! I need You Lord every second of every minute of every day.
