IT'S REALLY GOT A HOLD ON US

 
Romans 7:25


"Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in my sinful nature, a slave to the law of sin." NIV


"I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." KJV


Do we really grasp the captivity of sin that Christ freed us from by His death and resurrection? We are free to make a conscious decision to live the way our Lord intends for us to live. We no longer have to be enslaved by temptation and ungodly ways. When we get our minds off God, it is natural for us to fall back into our old fleshly ways. If we commit ourselves to engulf ourselves in communion with God and His Word, we will stay safely in the freedom for which Christ paid such a precious price.


Heavenly Father, how we praise You that You sent Your Son to set us free from our own fleshly natures and from the grasp of Satan. Give us more hunger for Your Word and to spend time in quiet communion with You so that we will not fall back into our old natures. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
