Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.
Romans 6:16 (NLT)
What are you a slave of? We don’t like to think of it that way. We pride ourself of our freedom. We love our free will and the ability to choose what we want, when we want. We’re not a slave to the world; we just spend a lot of time behaving like it. We are not a slave to worldly thinking. We go to church once a week and spend a couple hours a week reading the Bible. However, truth be told we begin to become controlled by what we allow to influence us. We “live in the world” but if we are not careful we will become “of the world.” There is a way out. We can choose to be God’s slave. We can obey His teaching with all our heart. Paul wrote it this way, “Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you.” Today, choose God. Choose to obey Him with all your heart.
Dear Father, I have been a slave to so many things. Today I choose to obey You with my whole heart. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me live for You.
