10/07 Romans 6:14-17
Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. 15 Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! 16 Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. 17 Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you.
When we come into the Family of God we come as changed creatures. Jesus paid the price for our sin and His righteousness covers us. We are constantly, consistently being changed into His likeness. Our goal: become more like Jesus. He is Lord.
