Don’t be a Slave

15 Jun

For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “ Abba! Father!”  Romans 8:15

The spirit of slavery in a bad sense, means those who become slaves to some base power, to yield to, give one’s self up to.  A spirit of slavery is when we accept our fearful condition with resignation.  Fear can become our master over and over again.  But we can cry out over and over again.
