Recognizing Our Bondage

Yesterday I stressed the importance of appreciating the freedom that is available through the sacrifice of Christ.   But what if I haven’t even acknowledged my need for independence?

Let me encourage you to make this a reflective day.   Are you in need of deliverance?   If so, from what?

  • Complaining?
  • Boasting?
  • Pride and arrogance?
  • Sexual immorality?
  • Gossip?
  • Lying?
  • Laziness?
  • Hypocrisy?
  • Busyness to the point of neglect?
  • Worry?
  • Materialism?

Have you ever felt the weight of Paul’s words in Romans 7:14-17?

Here is a cold, hard fact for today.   Until I am mature enough to confess the reality of my slavery, I will never gain true freedom.   The promise stands: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).   Make sure to take some time today to honestly admit where you still need the Master’s help.
