Struggling with a bad habit? Maybe it’s alcohol, or gambling, or pornography, or an out-of-control temper.
Many professing Christians assume that having been saved, the battle with sin is now over. Sure, they try to avoid a few “really bad” sins. But exempt from eternal punishment, they are pretty much free to live however they want.

Only when we view ourselves as slaves of Christ will we be able to overcome the bondage of sin.
