Free To Make A Choice - Poem by Peter Hall

The unregenerated man lives in a sealed bag
Tied with invisible chains around his heart and mind
Unable to do his own will.

A slave to lack of choice
A prisoner to his own military nature 
Unable to taste the life he craves.

The regenerated man feels free
To be a slave of righteousness and life 
Free to make the choice.

Dead to a nature that killed his freedom
It was living death
Now a slave to life! . 

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.' (Romans 6: 6,7,14,16-19,22 NKJV)
