The Journey of Sanctification | DAY SIX

SCRIPTURE READING

“What then? Should we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? Absolutely not! 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 to which you were handed over, and having been set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness. I am using a human analogy because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you offered the parts of yourselves as slaves to impurity, and to greater and greater lawlessness, so now offer them as slaves to righteousness, which results in sanctification. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness. So what fruit was produced then from the things you are now ashamed of? The outcome of those things is death. But now, since you have been set free from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification — and the outcome is eternal life! For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:15-23 CSB

THINKING FURTHER

THOUGHTS:
Many people today believe a man is only free when he is allowed to decide his own path in life, but this is simply the lie the serpent told Eve. The truth is that we are all slaves to a master. We are either slaves to our own sin, or slaves to righteousness. This is complete joy and freedom to those of us that follow Jesus, for “the outcome is eternal life!”

PRAYER FOCUS:
Prayer Focus: Let us pray to experience the joy of following Jesus, and the freedom that comes from the forgiveness of sins. This is the gift of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
