And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?
(Luke 13:16)
The woman in this account was bowed together and could not lift herself up. Jesus said, "You ought to be loosed." Jesus is saying the same thing today. If you're bound with sickness, if you're bound with disease, you ought to be loosed.

Jesus said that this woman ought to be healed because she was a daughter of Abraham. If you're a son or a daughter of Abraham, you ought to be loosed.

Galatians 3:29 says, "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."

Galatians 3:7 says, "Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham." We're the seed of Abraham. We're the children of Abraham.

As a son of Abraham, and a seed of Abraham, I ought to be free. Jesus died to set me free, and, thank God, I'm free. I refuse to be bound.

John 10:10 says, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

We see in this passage a contrast of two different works - the works of Jesus and the works of the devil. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). Jesus came to set us free.

I am a child of Abraham, and I ought to be loosed. I refuse to be bound. I refuse to be sick. Jesus died to set me free from sickness and disease.
