I hope you took the opportunity to take the Emotional Bondage Assessment located in my last blog. So now, let's dig deeper to understand the definition of emotional bondage. Again, you can go to my website and purchase the above book to read and understand the topic througly. www.drpeggyelliott.com.
Christ desires that we not just have life, but that we have abundant life. (John 10:10). Jesus has saved us and called us to a holy life (2Timothy 1:9). His desire is that we choose to untangle ouselves, through his power and get set free. Galatians 5:1says "Stand fast therefore in the liberty where with Christ hath made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Emotional Bondage tangles us up mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It can can sickness and disease to come upon us.
What is emotional bondage? You become emotionally bound when
•you feel compelled to behave in a way that is contrary to how God says you are to behave
•you have thoughts that are contrary to how God says you should think
•you are living less than a more abundant life
In the next blog, we will take a look at how someone becomes emotionally bound.
