Slaves of Righteousness
In Rom 6:15-23, the theme of this paragraph is "Slaves of Righteousness." Paul looks at the Christian life as one of service. We are to serve our fellow man. Paul however even oes further by calling the Christian life as one of service. He also calls it a life of being a love slave to Jesus Christ. As love slaves to Christ we are to live in the Holy Spirit. Before we knew Christ we were slaves to sin. But the Lord Jesus Christ broken the chains of sin and gave us freedom in Christ. In return for this freedom we become love slaves to Christ. This means we serve Him because we love Him. Paul was asked in Roman 1&2, how would people serve the Lord now that there is no law? Paul says that the law of love would help people to serve the Lord. As servants of Christ, let us determine today to give a love offering to the Lord. Let us tell someone about the Lord. Also let us make a more determined effort to serve Him. Your promises are: Psalm 37:3, 46:10, Prov 3:5-6, 14:26, Phil 1:6, Heb 3:14 and 1 Pet 5:7. Your Insighful Sayings are: Never be satisfied with a happy meal when you can have salmon or steak, unless you are vegetarian. A child who is spoiled is like a dripping tap, annoying and a waster of valuable resources.
