CAC LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL December 12, 2021. (A SLAVE INDEED)
TOPIC: A SLAVE INDEED
Read John 8:34-36
34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.
35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.
36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
MEMORISE: He who sins is of devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8)
The person in a prison is not a slave indeed. A person that is serving a boss is not a slave indeed. A person under the bondage of another prominent person is not a slave indeed. You know everything is all about choice. We were created as a free will being. We have right to make the choice we want and exercise our fundamental human rights on this day. Jesus says that whoever commits sin is a slave of sin (John 8:34). Anyone that commits sin is a slave indeed. Many confess to be Christians today without forsaking their sins. The major sign of being a slave of sin is inability to control your appetites in anything. You are still a slave to sin
if it is your old man (lust) that is controlling you (James 1:15).
Many so-called Christians continue to serve God with the sins in their hearts and their hands. We don’t fear what we need to fear again, instead we fear what we don’t need to fear. Many are afraid of recession, many are afraid of evil spirit, many of Satan, etc.
We don’t need to be afraid of any evil people, or evil spirit because the Bible says that the Lord has given us power and authority to trample over all the power of the enemy (Lk. 10:19). All what you need to do is to be a true child of God and to run away from sin and to continue serving your God in spirit and in truth. You know that a slave does not abide in the house forever. You need to be free indeed. You need to make a right choice. Do not put yourself into any unnecessary bondage again (Gal. 5:1).
1. Lord, help me to come out from the bondage of sin I carelessly put myself into.
2. Lord, do not let the power of sin overcome me again in my spiritual journey to heaven.
3. Pray for the rededication of those believers who remain in carnality for years.
