Mindset of a SlaveDaily Thoughts
Romans 7:25 “…So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin”
To be truly set free from the power of sin in our lives, we must become slaves to God’s law in our minds. This means that we must consciously submit to the spirit’s leading whenever we can. There is no middle ground where we become our own Master. You are either slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness.
It’s only through slavery that we gain true freedom.
We must all choose to keep an obedient mind, taking every thought captive and submitting it to the will of God. Letting God wash us everyday with his Spirit and prune our attitudes and deepest thoughts. Start to detox the things in your life that distract you and lead you astray. Facebook, twitter, 18 movies, TV, soaps, certain friendship groups.
Romans 8:6 “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace”
Even just thinking to yourself “I’m a slave to righteousness” brings out such an attitude of obedience in your mind, that you would only taste, touch and handle what your spirit permits for you. The thing is, it’s not about how much effort we put into being obedient, but when you spend regular time in God’ presence, waiting on your spirit, then God enables and empowers you to live an obedient life.
