We were made to operate under larger powers but sin can lower us to operate and be consumed under lesser powers too.
The Gospel is good news that we can be claimed by the only power that is worthy of our souls: Jesus Christ. Either I will be a slave to this world’s system or the love of God. Sin and death. Or love and light. Lies and deception. Or Truth, faith, hope, and love.
Christ in me the hope of glory.
