Paul points out that as Christians our servitude is sworn to God, but our sinfulness often makes a mockery of our commitments to serve God.
To check ourselves on this, let's look at the ways we might be giving ourselves over to sinfulness. For one thing, we may be enslaved by addictions. A song lyric from long ago had us saying, "Tell St. Peter at that Golden Gate that he will have to wait, cause I've got to have another cigarette." That is funny, but there is nothing funny about addictions that make us incapable of serving God.
