Civil+War+Era+Slave+Sale+Enacted+St+Louis+rMHBHqvS7AQl-300x191My Friends, today we as God’s chosen have been summons to appear in court. Charges have been brought against us for crimes that dates back for decades at a time when we were slaves and hardened addicts, with our drug of choice being sin.

Then something drastic happen in our lives and we became free by the blood of the lamb. But now we stand at the auction block chained and captured once again, property of the “accuser of our brethren” because somehow our mind is no longer “on things above, but only on earthly things.” Today our freedom is on the line, auctioned off for the highest price.

But at this point in our life we are really valuable to no one, so the auctioneer will be content to get whatever he can because sin has taken its toll on our mind and body. The bidding begins. A fallen Man or Woman he shouts!!! A perfect slave to sin, capable of doing exactly what you ask of him as long as sin can control.

We now stand without hope, with no joy, about to be sold to the highest bidder. We now look back over our life when we first became a slave to sin, we were on top of the world, or so we imagesthought, but now look at us a sad excuse even for a slave on the auction block, as we bow our head in shame.

But then, someone steps forward as the auctioneer say’s what is your bid sir for this perfect slave to sin? that’s strange the bidder doesn’t say a word, he only holds up his hands, He is now pointing to a scare on his brow, He now pushes back his robe and shows a deep imprint in his side.

No words are exchange, we have never seen this Person before but we do recognize the voice, a voice that has never ceased throughout our life to say, give me your all, I love you. The chains on our hands, and feet mysteriously falls to the ground as all the other buyers “slip away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only that voice that never left us or forsaked us is left.

My friends, we have been bought and redeemed by love, now it’s personal So “all to Jesus I surrender all to him I freely give I will ever love and trust him in his presence daily live. All to Jesus I surrender humbly at his feet I bow worldly pleasures all forsaken take me, Jesus, take me now.”

Yes my friends, once we realized the price Christ paid for us so that we can say with full assurance that we have been redeemed should bring a “passion within [our] heart that [we] have never known before.” and once we freely surrender it all to the Master, and continue to die daily, we will then, truly iphone_photoknow through our faith and endurance and God’s grace and mercy what it truly means to be free.

So we must praise Him day and night. For I am a personnel witness to how far He came to the auction block just to set me free so now “(I), count myself dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore (I) do not let sin reign in (my) mortal body so that (I) will continue (to) obey its evil desires.

(And  I) Do not offer any part of (myself) to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather (I) offer (myself) to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and (I) offer every part of (myself) to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be (my) master….” Romans 6:11-14


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
