But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
(Acts 16:25, 26 NKJV)
Pressure to be politically correct imprisons us to conform to societies standards leaving us to live in joyless mediocrity. Evoking God’s grace in the freedom of public worship liberates the shackles from our feet and the chains about our wrists so we can dance while lifting up our hands in celebration of the One who gives us the reason to be joyful.
