Slave to many or slave to one?
The humble servant only has one Master.
But the ambitious man has as many masters
as there are persons who might expand his fortunes,
as there are desires that would extend his appetites,
as there are pleasures that would temporarily provide for his comfort.
A man who is slave to the desires of his flesh,
Will find himself caught in the trap of many masters,
many vices – immoral, sinful, depraved and sinful acts.
The good man, even though a slave to God’s will,
is free indeed to live an abundant life.
But the wicked, the rebellious, the proud man,
though he reigns in his own mind,
is ensnared within the unrelenting grip of his vices,
that slowly tear at him as they draw him down to death.
We each choose our master –
And if we proudly believe that we have mastered our own lives,
We might just be bound up within the deepest slavery of all.
But there is a master who is kind and merciful,
Who seeks to teach mercy, love and forgiveness,
That leads to a life of
and faithful grattitude.
He alone is the way.
Turn away from wickedness.
Turn away from lies.
Turn away from your attempts to earn your way.
Realize that He has paid the way with a price that you could never afford.
Come to Him willing to be called Servant,
And find yourself called Follower, Friend, Son,
“Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” – Romans 6:16(NKJV)
