The consequences of our slavery. “Glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. That slaves are not “free moral agents” is a given. Our old masters—Satan and the flesh— compelled us to commit sin and to go to hell. Our new master commands us to be and to do that which honors our God and Savior, denying ourselves, taking up our cross daily, and following Him. Once it was impossible for us either to obey or to please God. Now, by the power of the indwelling Spirit we can do both and have been ordained as redeemed slaves to do so (Eph. 2:10). He requires nothing less. Nothing less will honor Him. Nothing less will bless us. Every time we exercise our “freedom” to choose our will we sin and dishonor our Redeemer. May we truly desire to honor our Lord as His faithful blood-bought slaves.
