New Testament Bible Meditation- May 6 - Text & Audio

Romans Chapter 6 verses 12 to 23

Therefore don't let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.

Neither present your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God, as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

For sin will not have dominion over you. For you are not under law, but under grace.

What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? May it never be!

Don't you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?

But thanks be to God, that, whereas you were bondservants of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto you were delivered.

Being made free from sin, you became bondservants of righteousness.

I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to wickedness upon wickedness, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness for sanctification.

For when you were servants of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

What fruit then did you have at that time in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.

But now, being made free from sin, and having become servants of God, you have your fruit of sanctification, and the result of eternal life.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Those were verses 12 to 23 from Romans Chapter 6

Insight- The greatest truth regarding the end of every person living in the New Testament age is mentioned by the Apostle Paul here in Romans 6, verse 23. The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Every person who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior must not let sin reign in their bodies. They must not live as servants to sin, but as servants to righteousness. They must present their bodies as servants to righteousness for sanctification. The end result of this sanctification is eternal life.

Question- As a believer in Jesus Christ, are you living as a servant to sin or as a servant to righteousness? Think about it.

Prayer- Dear Father in Heaven, grant me grace to live as a servant to righteousness by the power of your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
