1 Corinthians 6:12:

“Everything is permissible for me”—but I will not be mastered by anything.

This verse is such a challenge!  I don’t know about you, but it is so easy for me to let other things become almost as important as God in desicion making, my actions, life in general.

But whether it’s nutrition, future desires, peer pressure, denominational idiosyncrancies, tradition, environmentalism, clothing, comfort zones, houses, jobs, etc., etc…….nothing comes even close to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  He is the only Master.  It is a terribly burdensome thing to be mastered by other things…I have felt it!  But we can have freedom through Christ, when we let Him have His rightful place.  Nothing is near as freeing or as grand as letting Him rule everything, and letting go of everything into His loving, omnipotent hands.
