WHO ARE YOU, A SON OR A SLAVE?

Romans 1.1: This letter is from Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, chosen by God to be an apostle and sent out to preach his Good News. (NLT)

Romans 6.16: Do you not realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. (NLT)

Romans 6.18: Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living. (NLT)

Romans 6.22: But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves to God. (NLT)

FREEWILL: THE GATEWAY TO SLAVERY

When you remember the fact that you have freewill to do whatever you so desire, you would not want to let go of that power of deciding given you by God.

If in whatever you do, you intend to please God and not yourself, then, why not free yourself off the freewill and replace it with only God’s will. If you pray always that God’s will be done in your life, and admit that His will is the ultimate essence of existence, why not take away the freewill that would enable you choose between God’s, yours, or Satan’s, so as to always do His (God’s) will, and please Him at all times?

The only way to seal our sonship in God is, admitting the fact that we are slaves to Him. If you do not want to live for self, and allow your will to take control over you at all times, then, admit being servant or slave of God.
We should count ourselves most fortunate to be servants or slaves of Christ Jesus. For, this means, in effect, that we are free from the influence of the forces of this world, and bound only to worship Him (God). Worshiping of God in this context encompasses living in its entirety.
