I was reading the other day how some computers get taken over as slaves. The owner doesn’t know it, but somehow their computer gets used to send lots of email ads, or to try and gain credit card numbers and passwords to steal money. All sorts of evil goes on, your computer is a slave,, and you don’t even know it.

That’s a bit like slavery to sin...lots of people don’t even know they are slaves. But they are. What are you a slave to? A TV show? the internet? Some kinds of food? Chocolate? Coffee? Pornography? Clothes? Sport? Money? Chasing power? What are you living for? What are you thinking about all the time? What are you a slave to?

If we’re not living for Jesus, we’re living for something else. If we’re not a slave to Christ, we’re a slave to sin.
