Slavery

DevotionsSlavery

2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

 

A man is either free or is in Slavery. Paul speaking to the Galatians said “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery”.

 

There is a yoke of slavery without Christ. Jesus came to set us free from the bondage of sin. The bondage of sin does not only affect our spirit man, but it also affects everything about us. Tell me the strength a man has when he cannot control his eyes from looking lustfully at a woman, or his tongue from lying against his neighbor, or his heart from planning evil against his brother? Don’t you know that what controls you is master over you?

 

Man has become so foolish and alienated from God to an extent of glorifying slavery instead of seeking freedom from His slave master. We see men becoming famous for declaring they are prisoners of sin. Musicians/dancers performing nude, Politicians looting public funds, young men defrauding and killing people: Yet they are celebrated in the world. People pay heavily to watch a nude artist perform on stage, many even refer to them as icons. No wonder the bible says in 1 Corinthians 1:25 “For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength”.

 

What really did Sodom and Gomorrah do that our generation has not done? Man has become familiarized with his slave master (Satan) that he no longer recognizes his sufferings. Remember the bible says “since they did not acknowledge God, he gave them up to a reprobate mind”

Could it be that it is because of “You”, the one righteous person God has not destroyed the earth? Keep standing child of God, if you have fallen, stand up and keep marching forward. Do not compromise to evil, walk in the paths of Christ (Psalm 119:3).

 

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Where ever the Spirit of God is missing, there is bondage there! Stay free in Christ Jesus

 

God wants us to be free so as to set captives free. We must flee all appearance of evil because the devil is always on an assignment of plotting the downfall of the sons of God.
