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.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  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
