Sin is what makes a person a slave!..Slave of his addiction, sexual desires, lust, grudges, lies, greed, malice, evil eyes, pride, etc.. Slaves have no will of their own. They are literally in bondage to their masters. When sin is our master, we are unable to resist it.
Often we hear people saying that when they want, they can let go of it!… So, why haven’t them let go yet? The truth is that the more you get involved with sin, the more attached you get with it!…Pornography, drinking, smoking, lying, etc… It all starts with a curiosity, that then evolves in to full commitment. E.g. A person doesn’t commit adultery or fornication over night. It all starts with flirt!..The person get’s deceived by the heart and then becomes unable to resist it. The more you lie, the more lies one has to give to cover up!..
Here are 6 tips to overcome sin:
- Take a decision with your mind, not heart.
- Flee from it.
- Resist the temptation.
- Get involved with what is right, truthful, and upright.
- Get baptized by immersion to bury your old nature.
- Choose the right Master- Lord Jesus
“Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.”
