Sanders: two masters?

Thursday, February 15, 2024
    Commemoration of Thomas Bray, Priest, Founder of SPCK, 1730
    Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
    —Romans 6:16 (NIV)
    The enthronement of Christ in the heart secures the dethronement of self, for two cannot occupy the throne at the same time.
    ... J. Oswald Sanders (1902-1992), The Pursuit of the Holy, Grand Rapids, Mich.: Zondervan Pub. House, 1972, p. 30 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 6:16; 1 Kings 18:21; 2 Kings 17:33; Matt. 3:2; 4:10; 6:10,24; Luke 16:13; Gal. 1:10; Jas. 1:6-8; 4:4,8; 1 John 2:16-17; Rev. 3:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Do I secretly want to take control from Him?
