Needing a Prison Break!

  -->
I am a sinner....You are a Sinner. You are separated from God by that sin. You are granted a prison break because of Jesus Christ. You and I were born sinners...we have no means to break free from sin without Jesus...we have no hope of escape apart from the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We are captives to that sin and the only means for reprieve is to dedicate ourselves as Christ-followers so that He might reign in our lives.

Paul writes in Romans 6:18, “You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”

The truth is that we are free from sin, but we are not free to continue to sin by making my own choices and fulfilling my own desires. I am free because I have made a choice to following Jesus and Jesus alone.

The truth will set you free from bondage of sin, yet it makes you a servant accountable to the Lord Jesus Christ. A servant is not free to do as they choose, but a servant makes a choice to serve the master and the master's will and direction. How does this become natural for a servant? Serving becomes natural or habitual through exercise, through practice, through rehearsal … through a regular development and daily routine of regimented growth.

One fellow sinner to another...you know I love ya and seek to grow closer to the One who sets us free. Don
