"Sin or Obedience?"

“Sin or Obedience?"

Don’t you know that if you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of that one you obey---either of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness?  But thank God that, although you used to be slaves of sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching you were transferred to, and having been liberated from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.       Romans 6:16

In the span of mankind’s life, there are two areas, one of which you will abide in, and being a SLAVE to that particular area.  Mankind is born with a SINFUL nature, and as they grow and mature, they become a SLAVE to SIN. And they LIVE according to the FLESH, which results in a SINFUL lifestyle.  Being a Slave to SIN leads to DEATH.  Verse twenty-three tells us that: The wages of SIN is DEATH.  So, if you CONTINUE to be a SLAVE to SIN, you NOT only die a PHYSICAL DEATH, but you DIE SPIRITUALLY ALSO.  And your DESTINY is an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY of ESCAPE.

However, being a SLAVE to OBEDIENCE (to God and His Word), leads to RIGHTEOUSNESS, and an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  This comes about when you are WILLING to LEAVE or TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, which liberates you from being a SLAVE TO SIN and you become a SLAVE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, which will CHANGE your DESTINY from an ETERNITY in HELL to an ETERNITY in HEAVEN. 

In order to have this TRANSFORMATION take place in your life, you MUST come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART and CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS, God’s Only Son, died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT God’s gift of SALVATION, and become ENSLAVED to RIGHTEOUSNESS, and an ETERNAL LIFE, with ALL it’s BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
