Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? Romans 6:16
Every person is this world is under subjection to something or someone, even if you live in a liberal country. Your way of life shows the kind of things you yield/subject yourself to and therefore what master you serve. It is either you are subject to God through Jesus Christ or you are bound to sin and its master the devil.
To be a servant means to serve – to perform duties or services for another person. A believer therefore who selects which of God’s instructions to obey which ones to ignore is not serving God but is obeying the devil, because there is no middle ground. The Bible reveals in clear terms that no one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other.
Thus, if you have surrendered your life to Christ and He is truly your Master, refuse to be a slave to sin. Discipline yourself to obey God and ask for grace in areas where you are defaulting. Once you are in total obedience, God will gain mastery of your life and He will be glorified in your life- this is the will of God concerning you.

W: Reflect on this – Is your obedience complete before God? If No, make that your priority always.
X: I decree and I declare that I will serve the lord all the days of my life.
