It Is Your Freedom That Will Enslave You.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2 New King James Version

Salvation is free but discipleship will cost you your life. Detrick Bonheoffer

Salvation is indeed free. It is only by Christ’s sacrifice that we are saved. It cost us nothing. Once saved however, we are called to a life of service.

In the New Testament time there were what was called bondservants. These were free people who had no means to support themselves and so went to work for rich people.

So too it is with us.

We are free to choose to either accept Christ as out king and thereby become bondservants our to reject Him or remain slaves to Satan.

Before salvation we are Satan’s slaves. His reward is a life of enslavement to sin, worry and anger. Our ultimate reward is an eternal damnation in Hell.

Just as a bondservant could leave his master to serve another the same is true of us.

When we become Christians we leave Satan as our master and accept Christ as our Master. As such, we are called to serve others and thereby serve Him. Our reward is a beautiful loving relationship with Christ and His family. This also gives us the wonderful experience of love, joy and peace. Our ultimate reward is a place in Heaven with fellow Christians to a life of peace, joy and fulfillment.

Who is your master?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Heenu (The Lord is our God) for the most precious privilege of being a bondservant in Your magnificent kingdom. Please provide me with the opportunity to bring others into Your wonderful kingdom and know their places in it. I joyously give thanks and ask in the name of the king of kings, my beloved regal Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. Indeed, liberty without restraint is bondage! Thanks brother.

  2. Very well done! Yes, we are slaves of one kind or another. It pays great rewards to serve the Master of Holiness, it pays death to serve the evil one.
    The choice should be very clear, now the question becomes this: Why would we choose a few follies on this earth when we have everlasting reward in heaven? Wall Street would call that a very unwise investment…so does our Lord!
