“And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.” (Romans 6:18)
If you are a Christian, the shackles of sin are shattered and you are free. Having been in bondage to sin, you are now free to live in Christ. Remain fast in that freedom! Although free from bondage, should you slip the shackles back on your wrists? Certainly not! Yet we do that, don’t we? Why sit in a dungeon when the door is wide open? Let’s leave the slavery of sin behind us.
(John 8:34-36) “Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
I want to start each day forward with the mindset to be victorious! Not in your own strength, but in yielding to the Holy Spirit. We cannot live the Christian life under our own capacity. We can live life through the power of God. Bread in a toaster will not become toast until you plug the toaster in. You cannot break the bondage of sin without Jesus. When plugged in, you are powerful. Are you plugged in?
“We are free to live for God.”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for saving me from my sins. Thank You for the gift of freedom through You. Please remind me of that freedom when I feel like a slave to the world. Help me live in liberty by the power of Your Spirit like You want and intend for me. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Put your faith and trust in Jesus! If you do not know him personally please read below.
Jesus Christ says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20)
The Bible promises eternal life to all who receive Christ: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:11-13)
If you have not asked Jesus into your life you can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer.
Prayer is just talking with God. He knows your heart, so don’t worry about getting your words just right. Here is a suggested prayer to guide you:
Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
If you have read this prayer and believed in your heart, then congratulations!
(Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Savior the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that he answered your prayer.
