Is a Slave.

RUN TO THE LORD

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin John 8:34 New King James Version                                                              

With out Christ we are all slaves.

Some people today call this sin which enslaves us genetics. I believe that is true and if you trace your family history it will prove it. I see traces of my old bad dispositions in three previous generations and some previous addictions can be traced back many generations.

That does not excuse the sin.

If you have cancer you can go for treatment to kill it and eradicate it from your body. If you do not, it will grow until it ultimately kills you in a slow agonizing death.

It is the same with sin, it starts out small but if not given immediate treatment it will slowly kill your physical life and condemn you to an eternal hell. It only gets worse with time.

I have seen it destroy many who I grew up with in their later years.

There is only one cure for habitual sin and that is in the power of Christ. I knew my addiction almost killed me until I completely surrendered it to Jesus.

Yes you can still be a Christian and have this sin because you have not reached the end of your rope to surrender it to Jesus. For me it took two decades to reach that point. We all have a tendency to believe we are weak if we cannot handle it ourselves which is a great lie from Satan.

The truth is that we need the complete surrender of our sin to Christ to be set free from it.

It is when we let go of the end of the rope that Christ can and will do His greatest work in us. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                                                               

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 New King James Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) for redeeming my lost soul and blessing me with the greatest loving relationship there every was, is or will be. I praise You in the name of He whose precious blood made this amazing gift possible 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. How very true…we are the exact opposite of weak to admit we can’t do it on our own and surrender to God’s ways over ours. Thank you for honestly sharing your struggle; I hope it encourages others to take heart and know there is strength in God.

  2. We who say we have no sin are liars and the truth is not in us. That’s why we need the continual forgiveness of sins each and every day. Yes, it is something that left “untreated” will eventually kill us spiritually…

  3. Meaningful post Joseph! And an interesting photo too. Renee
