Today, although many claim to be bought & set free by the blood of Christ, they still walk with the chains of bondage around their neck or ankles!!
Just recently, in London, I met a young woman who was being kept as a slave. She was brought from Africa as a domestic help. Yes, she has accomodation, but she has no freedom, no wages, & no control over her own immigration papers, she is under their command, she is literraly their slave that they misuse, abuse, and take advantage of! This highlighted a plight to me!
The truth of the matter is, is that we are a slave to whatever we serve. If we work in the world, we are serving a boss, he has authority over you. For a period of time, you are a slave to him.
If you have debt, you are a slave to that debt!!
If you have an addiction, you are a slave to your addiction, anything or anybody who has control over you, you are a slave to!!
I want to tell you today, that this was a price that was paid for you when Jesus went to the cross!!
JESUS PAID FOR YOUR FREEDOM!!
Today, I wish for us all to examine our lives carefully & consider this day whom ye will serve!!
When you look up the word Adonia, it is a word that was used to describe a master!
In the words of Paul I would rather be a bondservant of Christ!!
If the majority of the week, you find yourself working a job to pay bills, or to pay off a debt, consider who is your master!
Is Jesus Christ really your master?? If so, serve Him & Him only!
I pray the God & the anointing that breaks every yoke will open your eyes to consider who you serve & who you wish to serve!
Consider theses words: you cannot serve God & mammon!!
Chose this day whom ye will serve
AS for me & my house, we will serve the Lord!!
