We can either be slaves to Sin or slaves to Righteousness, Good or Evil, God or Satan. Which one do you choose? Your choices might surprise you if you consciously go through them with a sifter one by one and compare them to the laws of the God of Righteousness.
Do you choose to talk bad about people that don’t do what you think they should be doing? Or that don’t fit into your standards?
Do you choose to steal something that doesn’t belong to you, no matter how small?
Do you think that some people are beneath you because they don’t believe the same as you do? That you are more righteous, or spiritual then others.
Do you get angry at people, because they don’t comply with your rules and regulations? Or they might hurt you in a way that, by a good chance, you have done to someone else.
I can tell you first hand that being a slave to sin completely envelops you in despair and hopelessness, not to mention that it nullifies your witness to someone that might be watching your life because you claim to be a Christ follower. So in essence, everything we do on this planet is another word placed on the pages of our “Life Letter” for everyone to read like an open book. (2 Corinthians 3: 3-6)
Dear; Fellow Soul Stranger.
My name is _____________ and I am writing this letter to you to tell you a little bit about myself in hopes that I might gain your confidence. I am part of something much bigger than myself and would like to introduce you to, and employee you in as well.
I like to think of myself as a “good” person but being truthful,… I like to point out your faults so that I can make myself seem better than what I am, I’m selfish because my time is much more important than yours, I’m impatient and closed minded when it comes to your opinions and thoughts because they are not as worthy as mine. If you’re lost or confused, it really doesn’t mean anything to me because I have a time schedule and can‘t be bothered by your problems. I shake my fist at you and rudely lay on the horn in traffic because I didn’t leave early enough for work and haven’t had my second cup of coffee yet, not knowing or caring where you are going or what your circumstances are. So what I am saying is, that my awareness and existence is for me only and occasionally drifts across the line into someone’s life that I already know and they have done something nice for me first, but please consider my offer to join me in my quest to convince others that I am a Christian.
Jesus through Me.
It is written that we possess the power of Life and Death in our tongue…
How much more Life or Death can we influence if we extend that concept into our daily lives as actions?
Be convicted, challenged, humbled, changed and forgiven..
