A Green Prison

God is our natural habitat. In Him we live and move and have our being. Until we find Him, as we do when we obey the gospel, we are caged. People everywhere are beating their heads against the bars of their own materialism and unbelief. Their very money becomes their prison. Deep calls to deep, and height to height, within our souls. Our art, our poetry, our works of beauty are the expressions of imprisoned creatures who remember the glories of the free air and the mountains. While good in themselves, these expressions remain mere reflections of reality until a soul comes into salvation. Jesus is the reality behind all that we see or do. The gospel releases us from bondage, allowing us to come into our true element.
