Slave? or Free?

30 Jun

For freedom Christ set us free;
so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.  (Gal 5:1)

People do all sorts of funny things in this life.

Many of the things that they do ensnare them.

We form all sorts of habits:  some good, some bad.

Our humanity has the propensity to form bad habits and lock us in to them.

Our bad habits lead us to further ruin.

Jesus can help us break that cycle.

He brings victory over sin.

We, for our part, need to accept His help so that we can break away from the things that ensnare us.

Do not be a slave to sin.

Accept the victory won for us from Christ and live as His people!

FAITH ACTION:  Pray for those who have allowed themselves to become enslaved to sin so that they might have the grace and courage to return to the Lord.
