Rent to Own
July 15, 2011
We are all slaves to something, but Christ offers us freedom from slavery to sin so that we may choose to live as slaves to Christ. Slavery is only a good thing if you have a good master, and Jesus Christ is the best master of all because in Him we find freedom. In early Biblical times, a veil was put up in the temple of the Lord to separate the holiest place so that only by a blood sacrifice could it be entered. When Christ died, that veil was torn in two, symbolizing that His blood was all that was needed so that we may now enter into fellowship with God when we choose to believe in Him. The veil was rent so that he could own us completely and be our master, but we have to yield to Him completely.
