John 8:34-35

34. Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin.

35. A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. NLT

A slave is someone who is legally owned by another person and is forced to work for that person without pay – Merriam Webster

We are not permanently owned by sin because we are not sin's legal property. Our passage also tells us that a slave is not a permanent member of the family. Thank God we're redeemable!

We do not belong to the devil, for Christ has redeemed us from the curse of sin (see Gal. 3:13), except we decide to remain enslaved by sin.

Exodus 21:5: But the slave may declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I don’t want to go free.’ KJV

You can do away with whatever holds you bond by acknowledging and accepting what God did for you in Christ and by living by the principles of God's word.

Go into today knowing that you are not a slave to sin and can be free from sin. Come to God in repentance today and he'll forgive your past and make you his son.

Prayer: thank you Jesus for freeing me from sin, I declare that sin will no longer have dominion over me in Jesus' name
