Trying to figure out how to get kids engaged with worship? Check out the resources below for songs and message specifically geared for kids to understand.
As we see in Acts 16, there are several different ways that people can be "in chains" or bondage. First, the fortune telling woman with the spirit was in bondage because she had no free will of her own. Paul sets her from her chains by casting out the spirit. Secondly, when Paul and Silas are taken to prison because they had done this, they are physically put in chains and also thrown in a prison cell. They are set from when they worship and pray and the jail is shook by an earthquake. Their physical chains are broken. Finally, the Roman jailor, when he sees that Paul and Silas and the other prisoners did not escape, he wants to know why and he hears the story of Jesus for the first time. He is spiritual saved from his chains. His sin no longer holds him. We see him and his family baptized and saved.
Use the activity below to remind yourself of ways in which to help set yourself and those you care about free-by knowing Jesus!
Like Paul and Silas, we should continue to sing praises. Sing this song to be reminder that God is our "Chainbreaker".
