The Bible describes Jesus Christ in various ways. He is not just the begotten Son of God and the savior of humankind. He was prophesied to be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). Other than that, we call Him our friend, rock, refuge, the list goes on. Now here’s a beautiful freshly made song referring to Christ as a “chain breaker.” The titular song was penned by Mia Fieldes, Zach Williams, and Jonathan Lindley Smith.
Who is Jesus According to the Song
Looking at the song’s lyrics, we can list at least three truths about who Jesus is. And, singing this song means we are declaring our affirmation and faith in His persona and power. Indeed, how wonderful and joyful it feels to know that we have such a great, mighty, and loving father. He works in ways we cannot see, but through faith, we can to feel, and visualize how omnipotent He is.
If you’ve got pain, He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost, He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving, He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you got chains, He’s a chain breaker
The above lines are not even enough to tell everything about Jesus. But, singing them can be truly uplifting. Zach Williams, who co-wrote and recorded the song, briefly shared the inspiration of the song. The desire to “reach people who had been struggling” was the main idea behind it. Zach added that the tune
“speaks to believers as much as it does to non-believers because we all get to places in our lives where we get lukewarm, and we just kind of forget what God’s done in our life. The song is very much the truths of who Jesus is.”
Jesus as a “Chain Breaker”
No one is exempted from being bound by chains of sins. That’s how we are as humans. And as we commit sin, the more that we become captives by it. But thankfully, someone came to break those chains to set us free. Even if it took Him His very own life, He did it with love and compassion.
If anyone of you, dear readers, is struggling with something else right now, feeling enslaved by such toil, turn to Jesus and let Him break those chains. Surrender those chains to Him, and you will be freed because Jesus is a “chain breaker.”
