A Slave to Sin or to God?
Bob Dylan used to sing about how “You gotta serve somebody.” Not a popular notion, but it’s true. Paul went so far as to say we are slaves to whatever (or whoever) we serve. But what is really shocking is that Paul was simply affirming what Jesus had said. He bluntly said we all serve one master or another. We can be free from the control of righteousness or we can be free from sin, but none of us is autonomous. We are all either slaves to sin or slaves to God. Every person you meet is either controlled by the sinful nature or by the Holy Spirit. Which one controls you?
His and yours,
