Being dead to sin and still sinning

crossbonesJoaquín  Guzmán ( Nickname “El Chapo”, which means shorty) is a Mexican drug lord and been in the news lately.  Forbes magazine called him the “biggest drug lord of all time.  El Chapo was arrested in 2014, but he escaped from prison again in 2015 by exiting through a tunnel dug to below his cell.  He was then recaptured by Mexican marines in 2016 after granting interviews to people like Sean Penn – because he wanted a movie made of his life.  El Chapo escaped his prison cell, but due to his own foolishness and pride, ended up back in bondage.

The same may happen to us as Christians.  We are freed from sin’s penalty, power and prison; and as free people we are told not to return to sin’s bondage.
