Romans 6:18 NIV
"You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness."
If I will be given a chance to be slave, obviously, I will choose to be a slave to righteousness.
Slavery to impurities and to other sins will just lead us to DEATH. Slavery to sins will give you a life long experience of death, restlessness and worries.
Yes, life long experience. If we will dwell in this belief, that we are slaves for sin, we will really experience that but if we will count ourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus (Romans 6:11 NIV) .... Welcome yourself as a slave!.....to....righteousness!
We all have downfalls and flaws but who cares? Jesus is so great that He can accept us wholeheartedly. I suddenly remember one part of a song, "if His grace is an ocean we are all sinking". See? That is how God loves us, it is like an ocean that has no end.
Sunset scenarios remind me of how cool and how amazing our Lord is. He make beautiful things in the right time. Just like our love story (for the singles out there!), the Lord has already your story, all we need to do is to offer ourselves to Him and start being a slave to righteousness so when the perfect time comes just like sunset, we will be overwhelmed by the beauty His creation.
As I end this post, think about this: Give your whole life to Him and make a vow to the Lord that from now on, you will be a slave to righteousness.
Hope you enjoyed!
