Under Gods Command

2 Peter 2:19 – They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.

Coming up my Mother always taught me to never let things control you, but you stay in control.  Those words were some of the great things that were taught to me by her.  You see, a person is a slave to whatever controls him or her.  Many believe that freedom means doing anything we want.  But no one is ever completely free in that sense.  If we refuse to follow God, we will follow our own sinful desires and become enslaved to what our bodies want.  If we submit our lives to Christ, he will free us from slavery to sin.  Christ frees us to serve him, a freedom that results in our ultimate good.
