Free To Be His Slave

Rod Shimabukuro

Scripture
"But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life." (Romans 6:22)
Observation
With my own thoughts reeling in lieu of Memorial Day weekend, here Paul reminds me that I'm living a freedom that tops all freedoms in this life! The freedom from sin resulting in being able to live a holy life and freedom into eternity!
Application
I can't help but to give thanks to God for enslaving me! He has taken me captive and has made me a prisoner of life and all the benefits and rewards of His Kingdom!

Having been a prisoner of my sins, taken captive by peer pressure, pleasing people, anger, lying, stealing, cheating, hurting others and a list of fleshly indulgences...I am freed by Jesus. I am free to be God's slave!

Today, I will live differently by:

- Honoring Jesus who enslaved me to be a prisoner of life.

Having honor in my heart for those who have given their lives - and still give their lives in service for our country and world!

Loving God, loving my family - and showing them through my devotion, attention and life's actions.
Prayer
Dear Daddie...

I am so thankful to be called Your slave. Thanks for releasing my soul, heart and life from the prison of my selfish self! Help me to live a holy life, having a heart that is sincere, transparent and truthful before You!
