God gives us free will. We have choices and with God’s grace should choose wisely. Whilst we are saved it doesn’t mean we are free to continue to sin (and actually, I am not sure why we would want to). But so many Christians are not living the life God wants for them because they choose to abide in old sins or perhaps are too timid to step out of the shadow of sin into the light. God did not give us a spirit of timidity, he wants us to be slaves to him, not to sin, and in choosing to serve the Lord, to in effect become his slave, we are actually choosing real freedom, no longer slaves but sons and daughters of the living God. The key to true freedom is obedience.
Romans 6:15 – 16: What does all this mean? Does it mean we are free to sin, because we are ruled by God’s wonderful kindness and not by the Law? Certainly not! Don’t you know that you are slaves of anyone you obey? You can be slaves of sin and die, or you can be obedient slaves of God and be acceptable to him.
Joshua 24:15 – But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
Proudly addicted to becoming stronger, to choosing more wisely, obsessively seeking the light, choosing to abide in him, if I am to be a slave let it be to the one who made me, the one who saved me, no longer a slave to fear, no longer a slave to the past, choosing to serve the Lord, refusing to hear the words of the enemy who wants only to destroy me, taking a step of faith, not knowing which way it will lead, but believing that God’s all over it, he’s planned it, he’s got it, as for me I will serve God faithfully, obedience written on my heart, set apart for greater things, daughter of the King of Kings.
