“Slave of Sin or Righteousness?”
But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. Romans 6:17, 18
In this life, we are given many choices. Some of which can and will be LIFE-CHANGING, however, there is one that will make a PERMANENT change in our eternity or after-life. That choice is whether or not we will ACCEPT Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. Or will we remain in our sinful, corrupt, disobedient lifestyle, being a SLAVE of SIN, and rejecting Jesus Christ and being a SLAVE of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
When we come to Jesus Christ, after HEARING the Gospel of God’s Holy Word, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and seeking the FORGIVENESS and FREEDOM of our sins, and willingly being OBEDIENT to the Holy Word of God, and being set FREE from the taskmaster of sin. We then become a SLAVE of RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS.
We then encounter a LIFE-CHANGING experience, one that will alter our life-style, and give us a HOPE and a FUTURE concerning our ETERNITY. We CANNOT obtain a HOLY RIGHTEOUSNESS apart from the Lord Jesus Christ. And we CANNOT go to Heaven and live for ALL ETERNITY with Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ, unless we are WILLING to become a SLAVE of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Who is your master? Sin or RIGHTEOUSNESS? If you have NOT come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, being OBEDIENT to His Holy Word, and seeking FORGIVENESS and FREEDOM of your sins, then you are a SLAVE of SIN and its ETERNAL destiny. However, you have been given the opportunity to break the chains of sin, and to be set FREE. You do that by: Coming to God with a TRUE, OBEDIENT and REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a SLAVE of RIGHTEOUSNESS. Do it NOW while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON.
