But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:11-14)
There is no question to Christ’s ability to free us from being servants to the flesh and to sin. He is able. He has made it possible for us to serve God instead of sin. Now we must choose to serve God with all of our heart and soul daily, even moment by moment. Every man is either serving sin or serving God. For “no man can serve two masters.” We are always serving a master…Jesus freed us from the bondage of sin so that we would be free to serve the living God!
