Topic: “Slaves to Righteousness”
SCRIPTURE: Romans 6:13
Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
When you were sinners, sinning was easy and almost automatic. Everything about you was subject to sin. Now that you are saved and a child of God, you can equally yield all your members to righteousness. We are now slaves to righteousness.
You see, living for God is challenging but not hard. All we need to do is surrender to His grace and allow our identity in Him to naturally flow out. Being yielded to the power and energy of righteousness, we will find ourselves doing the things that please God.
Consider the Bible stories of men on whom The Spirit came, men like Samson. They did extraordinary wonders because their members were under the Spirit’s influence.
We will likewise do exploits when we yield to righteousness and allow that new nature to lead us. The end result is life.
I am now God’s child. What used to empower sin in my life is now dead. I’m now a servant and slave to righteousness. My mind, my tongue, and all that I am is under the influence of grace. Without struggle, I’m manifesting the God-kind of life. Thank You, Father!
