Imprisoned

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.     Romans 6:12-14

 

 

Danny Villegas walked inside a Credit Union in Florida and announced to the teller that he was robbing her. Then he said, "You might as well call the police right now."  Then Villegas sat down on a couch in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.

 

Ten years earlier, Danny Villegas had robbed a bank, and had served time in a federal prison.  After being released, he took a job working construction.  He then decided he like prison life much more than working, so, he committed another crime just so he could return to prison!

 

That sounds crazy, but are you doing the same thing?  After being freed from the prison of sin, are you running back there?  Jesus died to release you from that!  Instead, run to God who has brought you from death to life!  Prison is no place for a free man!

 

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
