Romans 6:15-18

www.gypr.wordpress.com Esther 2

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! 16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

  1. This to me is saying that you can prevent sin. Maybe not ALL of it, because no one is perfect, but you deffinately have another door leading to the right direction because God always leaves another way out.

  2. The slavery that we left, sin, did not give us any choices. We were born into its captivity because of our Adamic nature and had no hope of escape on our own.

    When we choose to accept salvation, the only path to free us from slavery to sin, we not only choose freedom from sin, we also choose slavery to righteousness. We have chosen a master that demands righteousness from us and we must overcome our sin nature to live true to our Master’s standards.

  3. good job Rick, just like in Matthew, you can only serve one master…we need to recognize that we have a master, its either our sinful nature aka Satan or a slave to righteousness…But I like how Paul shifts here from talking about sin dealing with the gentiles who were not aware of the law to showing the Jews who know the law, that they cant just ignore the law live as they want because of grace…Paul does a great job of showing us that all groups are welcomed and expected to live the standard of Christ…not just one core group of people or another.
