When we disobey, we create our own prison. The key to breaking out is to obey God. The more we obey, the clearer God’s voice becomes. Then, He will tell us how to avoid the sin trap and live free from addiction, bad habits and ungodly relationships. Obedience breaks chains.
Galatians 5:16, Living Bible – 16 “I advise you to obey only the Holy Spirit’s instructions. He will tell you where to go and what to do, and then you won’t always be doing the wrong things your evil nature wants you to.”
Wrong associations, “idols” and temptation are the three culprits that thwart an obedient lifest yle. Learn how to identify and overcome them in this slideshow…
John 14:23-24, New King James Version
23 “Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.”
God loves living with obedient people who put Him first (Matthew 6:33). Wouldn’t it be great if God came to visit you and liked your house so much He decided to stay? It’s wonderful when the most powerful, generous, loving person ever is your Father God, who owns everything! By the way, God the Father has entrusted everything to His Son Jesus (Hebrews 1:2-3). So, when we have Christ, we have everything too!
Colossians 2:9-10, Living Bible – 9 “For in Christ there is all of God in a human body; 10 so you have everything when you have Christ, and you are filled with God through your union with Christ. He is the highest Ruler, with authority over every other power.”
When we are filled with Christ, nothing can keep us in bondage.
John 8:32-37, Living Bible – 34 Jesus replied, “You are slaves of sin, every one of you. 35 And slaves don’t have rights, but the Son has every right there is! 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free.”
