Prior to salvation all men are slaves to sin, in bondage to things of this earth and things of the enemy.
Once save we have of course been removed from slavery.
Or have we?
I like to think that once a man gives his life to the Lord he is removed from one form of slavery into another.
He becomes a slave to righteousness; he cannot escape from the fact that he now has right standing with God.
He becomes a slave to the love, mercy and compassion of God, from which he can never escape.
Instead of being a slave to sin and the enemy he becomes a slave to Christ.
If we are in slavery someone owns us, someone has responsibility over us.
Once saved we still have a lord and master, however this new Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, has a love, mercy and compassion for us.
Our new Lord and Master wants the best for us; He wants us to become slaves to healing, prosperity and abundance.
I don’t know about you but I am glad to be a slave; I am also eternally grateful that my new Lord and Master is Jesus Christ.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have moved from one form of slavery into another, and thank you that my new Lord and Master is Jesus Christ”.
Galatians 5 v 1…..Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage
