Romans 6:16 (KJV) Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Dare got to a point where he started to wonder whether he was still born again. He had literally been enslaved to certain sins, and it looked impossible for him to come out of them.
Dare had been enslaved by these sins because he yielded himself to them from time to time. The unclean spirits responsible for those sins had enslaved him and he was now demonized even though he was a Christian.
He received deliverance when he opened up to his pastor. His pastor prayed for him and delivered him in the name of Jesus. He maintained his deliverance by living a disciplined life and avoiding appearances of His past sins.
As we can see in today’s Bible text, spiritual slavery to sin is real, and when a person is delivered from such, he must yield himself to righteousness and become a slave of righteousness, or else, he will end up being a slave of sin all over again.
When with the help of the Holy Ghost you chose to walk righteously in all you do, you are yielding yourself to righteousness.
As you go into today, remember that it is those who please God that see His face. Righteousness pleases God and sin displeases Him.
Prayer: ask the Lord to make you a slave of righteousness and deliver you from every bondage of sin. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
