Surely you know that you become the slaves of whatever you give yourselves to. Anything or anyone you follow will be your master. You can follow sin, or you can obey God. Following sin brings spiritual death, but obeying God makes you right with him. — Romans 6:16
What are you giving in to?
Cravings, addictions, compulsions, lust, anger, envy, impatience, jealousy, bitterness, strife?
You become a slave to whatever you give in to.
What things are you following?
The crowd, popular opinions, the latest trends, the lure of material things, wealth, fashion, flesh, emotions, status?
Anyone or anything you follow becomes your master.
So this is what the Lord God All-Powerful, the God of Israel, says: ‘Why are you hurting yourselves by continuing to worship idols? — Jeremiah 44:7
Why do you people want to make me angry by making idols? Now you are living in Egypt. And now you are making me angry by offering sacrifices to the false gods of Egypt. You will destroy yourselves, and it will be your own fault. The people of all the other nations on the earth will say bad things about you and make fun of you. — Jeremiah 44:8
Let’s examine what we are following and giving in to…. It could be causing us “Spiritual Death.”
May it be God and God alone we obey and follow.
