Whether we realize it or not, we’re all in bondage. We’re all held captive by one master or another. As imperfect human beings, we all started as slaves to sin — but because of the price Jesus paid for us, we have the opportunity to be freed from our bondage to a sinful nature and be born again as slaves to righteousness.
Jesus teaches us that we can’t serve two masters. But we are called to serve one! When Jesus died on the cross, it made it possible for us to choose God as our Master. We can either be a slave to sin or a slave to God — the question is, what’s our choice going to be?
