For the Christian, this powerful entity is sin. We are bound to its chains and are unable to free ourselves by any of our works. But by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are liberated from sin.

As a creative, I have found this especially true for me. I stunt my potential, thinking I’m inadequate.
