Justify Your Sin

Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
-John 8:34 (King James Version)

We are all servants to something. We either serve ourselves, or we serve God. But, there is one fact that needs brought up: We can't serve both. 

Jesus was teaching about being obedient to what He's taught us. That is how to be free from the bondage of sin. The religious leaders took offence to His statement implying they were in bondage. The said, in verse 33, "They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?" They didn't want to admit their sin, they either justified their actions by creating new "laws" of God, or they actually believed that, because of position, they were free from sin. Jesus replies, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin." If we choose to sin, we become sins servant. It doesn't matter who you are, or what position you have in life. Sin is sin, and you can't serve sin and serve God at the same time. 

What about your sin? Is it your master, that you serve your sin? Or, do you try and justify your sin by twisting around the Word of God to make it say something, or do you turn a blind eye to your sin, or do you really believe that there is no such thing as sin?
