Hoping to share the love, joy, and grace I have received in my own life.

We All Have a Master

on July 3, 2017

But now, since you have been set free from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification – and the outcome is eternal life. ~Romans 6:22

It’s true.  We all have a master – either God or sin.  I work hard not to judge others because they sin differently than I do and I admit that I catch myself falling into that particular sin (judgment) more than I would like to admit.  I am continually praying and working through that.

I do know there is no sin from which God can’t set you free.  As a child of God, we no longer have to be slaves to sin.  We belong to God.  We’re chained to him and the fruit of that becomes the sanctification* (the Holy Spirit’s  continual work in and through us as Christians) that allows for eternal life.  This is real freedom.

If we choose sin, eventually the result becomes death.  By choosing God, the blessing is eternal life that begins here on earth and continues forever.  The happiness found in choosing God and living for him is the most liberating choice I have ever made.

*For more on sanctifying grace, listen to Reverend Rob Hamilton’s July 2, 2017 message here . Pastor Rob’s message begins at the 29:40 mark.  On another note, my little brother, Jason, sings a song in the middle of Pastor’s message.
