Do not Open the Door

bars[2]

It is harder to get the devil out once you let him in, than to keep him out, with this thought in mind let us consider the words of the apostle Paul. “Do you not know, that to whom you yield yourselves slaves to obey, his slaves you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16

No one has the option to walk in and out of slavery as if it were just another job; the one who becomes a slave stays a slave unless he is set free by his master or bought by another. The slave owner in Romans 6:16 is either sin or righteousness, as it is written, ‘…his slaves you are to whom you obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness.”

If we willfully sin, that is, plan to before time, make allowance because of grace or any other reason, or excuse ourselves because of some pending circumstance, then we present ourselves to sin. Once we present ourselves to sin, we become the slave of sin. Paul warns us not to become slaves of sin because once enslaved it is difficult to become free.

The child of God is free from sin because of his union with Christ. “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin” Romans 6:5-6.

However, the person enslaved to sin does not easily exercise faith, because he has no spiritual strength to do so. If you are enslaved to a sin set aside prolonged periods of time to pray and fast, so that you might be given the necessary faith to reckon yourself dead to sin and alive to God, by your union with Christ.

The Christian will rise again by faith when knocked down by sin; he is united in Christ’s death, therefore, he will also be united in His resurrection, so that he might not be enslaved to sin!

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
