As we become ensnared and entrapped by the spirit of mammon, it becomes a hard taskmaster, unrelenting in its pursuit of our hearts and affections. For Christians this leads to a sense of shame, guilt and condemnation, which the enemy uses to keep us in turmoil and captivity. God has provided a way through the finished work of the cross. Jesus has set the captives free. By His death and resurrection, we become free of shame and condemnation, to walk in freedom. This also applies to the management of our money and possessions —what a wonderful gift. 2 5 | u n m a s k i n g m a m m o n Unmasking_Mammon_book_4.5.indd 25 2018-07-11 7:41 AM
