I spent some time yesterday reflecting on slavery. Not the sort that comes with literal chains and menial service to one’s owner or master. I was thinking about spiritual slavery. The Scriptures are clear that apart from faith in Christ, we are all in a state of slavery. Jesus says, “Everyone who practices sin is a slave of sin,” (John 8:34). But in Christ we have been set free from bondage and have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of Christ (Colossians 1:13). I know that is true.
