WHO IS YOUR MASTER?

TEXT: ROMANS 6:16
“Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey, whether you are slaves to sin, which lead to death or to obedience which leads to righteousness?. (Romans 6:16).
A master is an individual who hires employees or servants to perform services and who directs the manner in which such services are performed (Free dictionary.com). As human beings in this planet earth, we are serving someone, we have somebody that is mentoring us, either we know it or not, we are helping somebody to fulfil his purpose for our lives. God created us to live and serve Him, and Him alone, but some people have gone out of his purpose for their lives, either knowingly or unknowingly. Some people have given their Lordship to the devil that has enticed them and lured them to himself with worldly pleasures. The bible says in Matthew 6:24 that one man cannot serve two masters, you cannot serve God and the devil at the same time. Is you are either for God or against Him; (You cannot be on the fence).
If Jesus is your master, you will use him as your role model, you will work in his way so that his purpose in your life can be fulfilled (His purpose is to give you life more abundantly).

Those that are living in flesh are also helping their master (Satan) to fulfil his plan and purpose for their lives, which is to steal, to kill and to destroy (John 10:10). We know when we are doing things that sadden the heart of God; we know when we are not in His will. “A master is the one who hires servants or employees to perform….” Check the services you are performing on the planet earth, can Jesus hire you to perform such service? Is it the type of service Jesus rendered while he was on earth? Examine yourselves, and answer the question truthfully, who are you working for? WHO IS YOUR MASTER? We cannot deceive God, even though we deceive people around us, He knows those that belong to Him. (John 10:14).
