I Love My Boss!

Daily Reading: Romans 6

Scripture Focus: But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. (Romans 6.22)

Devotional Thought: Have you ever had a 'bad boss'? Harsh? Playing favorites? Dishonest? Maybe it's not fair to say your boss is bad, but that's what it feels like. It's miserable. What did you do? Did you try to get a transfer? Quit your job? Talk to the boss' boss? Grin and bear it? Some working relationships are beyond repair; they just require a change.

Having sin as our 'boss' is that way. Sin is a harsh taskmaster. You can never do enough to satisfy sin. You never get ahead. The system seems rigged against you. As someone once said, "Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” There's only one thing to do: Quit!

Through Jesus Christ, we have been set free from sin. We no longer have to satisfy its demands. We are free to be the person we were created to be. As we walk with Jesus, fully surrendered to him, our lives begin to take on his character more and more. Yes, it takes time to grow in our faith and obedience and Christ-likeness. There is a difference between purity and maturity. We are set free in a moment, but grow over the course of time.

Having a new, forgiving, caring boss, why would I ever want to check in with the old, harsh, and hateful boss? Why would I subject myself to that abuse? I wouldn't! Neither would you. If we would not do that in employment matters, why would we do it in spiritual matters?

Live in the freedom that Christ gives you!

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for setting me free from sin. Help me to live this day in that freedom, fully depending on you as my new 'boss'!

Psalm of the Day: 6 But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by mankind and despised by the people. 7 All who see me mock me; they make mouths at me; they wag their heads; 8 "He trusts in the LORD; let him deliver him; let him rescue him, for he delights in him!" 9 Yet you are he who took me from the womb; you made me trust you at my mother's breasts. 10 On you was I cast from my birth, and from my mother's womb you have been my God. 11 Be not far from me, for trouble is near, and there is none to help. (Psalms 22:6-11)
