Colossians 1:13,14 "For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins."
A fuzzy little kitten is certainly at risk in the pudgy hands of a two year old. Being squeezed and pulled and held against its will will terrify it for life. But when an adult comes along and rescues it from further torture then the kitten learns to breathe easy again. There was a time we were in the clutches of the kingdom of darkness, at risk of being torn apart. Then we cried out to the One who was reaching His hand out to rescue us and bring us into freedom and forgive us our sin. There we start to breathe easy and learn to trust the One, the Lord Jesus, who rescued us.
