Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
Freedom is one of humanity’s most prized possessions! Yet many people are in captivity. You see, we aren’t just physical beings, we are also spiritual, and we can be enslaved spiritually as well as physically.
YESHUA said that anyone who commits sin is in bondage to it (referring to continuous wrongs that become a lifestyle, even for His believers)!
Almost anything, including the pursuit of power, money or relationships, can develop into a pattern of sinful living. Usually ungodly habits begin in a way that seems innocent and fulfills a desire or need. Over time, we can easily become desensitized to any guilt that we might have felt in the beginning. As we sense less conviction by the Holy Spirit, our habit can become comfortable and eventually controls us!
YESHUA answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.
Let’s not be deceived by satan. Take an honest look at your life’s motivations! Are there some habits, emotions or dreams that own you?
There is only One who can set you free. His name is “YESHUA.” Cry out to Him today!
Love & Blessings,
Pastor Bruce and Suzi Elman
