Prisoners of Hope – Zechariah 9:12

Zechariah 9:12
Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;

Jesus Christ was born to set prisoners of sin free.  This purpose drove the Savior on to Calvary. From cradle to grave, the Lord worked to liberate His people.  When the Lord ascended, He carried the captivity captive. God’s children are no longer captives of sin, but like the Apostle Paul, we are prisoners of Jesus Christ.  We, the prisoners of hope, do therefore return to the stronghold of the Rock of our Salvation.

Run to the Savior.  His yoke is easy, His burden light.
