Here’s a Newsflash: You are a slave! What do I mean? How can I say that? I wish I didn’t, but it is the truth. The average person will admit that he or she is a sinner. Would you admit that? Are you a sinner? That is easy to admit because we are all in the same boat; a bunch of sinners, no one better than the other.
Now that you’ve admitted you are a sinner (you still are even if you refuse to admit it), let’s see what Jesus says about you. “Everyone who sins is a slave to sin” (Jn 8:34). Ouch! Now that hurts; no one really wants to be a slave, not in this day and age.
You don’t really have to continue to be a slave; you can be free today! Jesus said, “If you hold on to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free: (Jn 8:31), and again, “If the Son sets you free you will be free indeed” (Jn 8:36).
Jesus says He is the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father (God) except through Him (Jesus) Jn 14:6. Jesus loves you so much that by His death He paid the ransom for you to be free from sin and its power. Hence if you do not want to remain a slave, do what I did. Believe in the name of Jesus, ask God to forgive your sins on account of Jesus’ sacrifice; He will do that, and you will begin to enjoy freedom and peace. Please do this now; it is that important!
