141. “Everyone who sins is a slave to sin” (John 8:34).
Choices have destinations. Usually in the midst of the choice, we don’t sense a path, but every step is moving us somewhere. When we sin, we take a step away from God and down one of the six or seven paths Satan has designed. But when we choose righteousness, we not only move toward God–we also move away from Satan, walking a path he has never traversed. The point is that every choice accumulates into a destination and until God has shown you His path, you have no options except those that lead to bondage and destruction.
