Scripture:
“Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'” ~John 8:34-36

Observation:
Jesus is in a dispute with some of the people over who He is and who they are. Jesus is telling them that if they hold to His teaching, they will be set free. They believe they are already free, but Jesus knows otherwise.

Application:
Since I am a follower of Christ, I am no longer a slave to sin by being brought into the family as a son. Before becoming a Christian, there was nothing I could do about sin. Now, though, I can be free from it.

Prayer:
Father, thank You for the gift of sonship through Your Son Jesus. Now that I no longer am a slave to sin, help me continue to resist the temptations of the evil one so that I can break the sin that is still in my life. I long for Your freedom. Not like the “freedom” that the world offers; counterfeit freedom designed by Satan to distract us, but true spiritual freedom.
