MASTERED


2 Peter 2:19b


". . .for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered
him." NIV


". . .for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he
brought in bondage." KJV


This is not about our jobs, relationships, or positions
in life. We can't all be kings, CEOs, and leaders. This
is about our attitudes and thinking that we become
slaves. We come under control of a philosophy, an
approach to life, a desire for the truth. According to
the Word of God, we are mastered by one of two
masters: the Lord our God or our own fallen human
natures. The former leads to eternal life. The latter
leads to eternal darkness. The good news is that we
can choose which will be master over us.


Heavenly Father, we praise you and glorify your name
that you have given us the gift of choice. We thank
you that you have given us the way to eternal life through
the Lordship of Jesus Christ, who is our Master. Give us
hearts of gratitude and praise at this Good News. In Jesus'
name we pray, Amen.
