Living in Bondage


When we stop listening to the Holy Spirit, the temptation can be strong to meet our needs with sinful options.


Freedom is one of humanity’s most prized treasures. Yet every human being is born in captivity to sin. Jesus said anyone who commits sin is a slave to it (John 8:34). The only way to be set free is if the Lord releases you. Salvation is the permanent liberation spoken about here, but the Savior also continually sets believers free from the sins entangle them.


Ungodly habits typically begin as an attempt to fulfill a desire or need in the wrong way. If feelings of guilt come, we may quickly rationalize them away. Over time, we become desensitized to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and the ongoing trespass becomes a comfort. Eventually it controls us, and we feel powerless to stop.


As believers, however, we’re never without strength, because the Holy Spirit indwells us. With His help, we’re no longer slaves to sin but instead become slaves of righteousness (Rom. 6:12-19).


Take an honest look at your life. Are there any habits that own you? If so, it’s time to fight the good fight. As you submit yourself in obedience to God, He’ll begin to set you free.
