Slave to Sin or Christ?

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. Romans 8:2

This may not be a popular statement, but EVERYONE is a slave! You are either a slave to sin and death or you’re a slave to Jesus Christ. A lot of people misunderstand this concept of slavery, when I talk about slavery I don’t mean a forced slavery, this is a voluntary slavery. When you choose to not follow Christ and pursue sin, you choose to become a slave to Satan. If you choose Jesus as your Lord (Master) then you choose to be a bondservant, a voluntary slave or servant for Jesus Christ, who is the only one who can release you from the curse of sin and death

Some might say “Well I’m an Atheist” “I don’t believe in any of this stuff” , well even if you don’t believe in God, I can guarantee you’re a sinner. Because we were all sinners at one time. So if you sin you are a slave

Some might say “Well I still live Under The Law” , the Law was never a means for salvation. The purpose of The Law was for us to know what sin is and how God expects us to live. Jesus is the Living Word, he is The Law fulfilled. Does that mean we disregard The Law, NO, but we don’t use it as a means for salvation

Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. Matthew 5:17

Jesus Christ has fulfilled The Law, what does that mean? It means if you want to be set free from sin and death, become a slave of Jesus Christ. He is the only way to the Father in Jesus Name Amen!

    Because we still live in a fallen world we are still subject to sin! Daily we need to keep dying to sin and being raised to live a life that glorifies our Lord! I hated finding out that I was a slave to sin! Then after Jesus cleaned me up, I could see where I was still in some type of bondage,I was still a slave to smoking!!! I had to have that cigarette as a means of calming me down! Funny thing was I never enjoyed smoking! I was a slave to a 5 inch piece of paper that wrapped tobacco around it. UGH! Trying to stop smoking on my own was futile I would fail 100 times until I got on my knees and begged God for His deliverance! I knew the only way I could be free from smoking was through God! It’s been 10 years since I have had a cigarette,God did deliver me and to this day I am no longer a slave to cigarettes!!! PRAISE YOUR HOLY NAME LORD JESUS!!! Addiction is slavery whether it’s smoking,drinking drugging,eating or spending all day in front of the television or playing video games and spending to much time on the computer ie Twitter/Facebook. The Bible tells us we can’t serve two masters,we will love one and hate the other! Jesus died so we wouldn’t have to live in any kind of slavery! Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Blessings dear brother!
