Rom 6:15-23 Sin Will Kill You
No matter how good a person may be, if she has not believed in Jesus Christ, she is dead in her trespasses and sins. There is no life without Christ. He is the life; He is come that we might have life and have it more abundantly. T
No believer can ever lose eternal life. It is not eternal if it can be lost. Once saved always saved. But every believer must decide daily to deny self, pick up our own cross and follow the Lord as His disciple. The second we turn back to sin we become slaves to sin. Let us not be obedient to sin but to Christ.
Sin cannot take away our eternal life, but it can kill our joy in the Lord. It can kill any sense of peace that we have that passes all understanding. It can kill our testimony and spoil our spiritual fruit. It can hinder our prayers. It can bring self-destructive patterns into our lives that will leave us in darkness and depression.
O God give us grace that we might not be servants of sin but servants of righteousness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. 20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
