Acts 7:39 – To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt
Because of the mighty power of the Lord, Israel was made free of the house of bondage. For the first time in several generations, God’s chosen people were free. However, though their bodies were free, their minds were still captive to sin and pleasure. In short, their hearts were “turned back again into Egypt”. Though a (relatively) small few of this world is literally, physically enslaved, many hearts are chained to the things of this world. The pleasures of the flesh lure free human beings into voluntary slavery. This need not be the case. Just as God delivered His children from physical slavery, He will readily save His erring children from the bondage of sin. Ask the Lord to set you free and break the chains of unrighteousness around you. And if the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
