….you are that one’s slaves whom you obey…. — Romans 6:16-18
Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.
When you yield to something, you will soon realize the tremendous control it has over you. No release or escape from it will ever come from any human power, but only through the power of redemption. You must yield yourself in utter humiliation to the only one who can break the dominating power in your life, namely, the Lord Jesus Christ. Yielding to Jesus will break every kind of slavery in any person’s life.
