There are two distinct classes of slaves in the world, and it is important to know to which we belong. The apostle teaches us how to do this when he says,
"Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves–you are slaves to the one whom you obey; whether you are slaves to sin–which leads to death; or to obedience–which leads to righteousness?" Romans 6:16
Who is your Master? There are but two great masters in the world–and we all serve one or the other. Who then, is your master?
Is it SATAN? If so–then sin is your service. You neglect what God requires–and you do what God forbids. You . . . indulge the lusts of the flesh, enjoy the lust of the eye, and walk in the pride of life.
