YOU ARE A SLAVE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!
But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having being set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness (Romans 6:17-18).
As a Christian, you are not a slave to sin but a slave of righteousness. That is why it is an aberration for a Christian to be struggling with sin. The Bible declares that a Christian is free from sin through the death of Jesus Christ. A Christian has become a slave of righteousness but not a slave of sin. It is highly important that a Christian knows who he is in Christ Jesus so that he will not live a life of bondage due to ignorance of God’s Word. A Christian was delivered from sin and its bondage to live a life of righteousness.
A Christian is a new creation in Jesus Christ. A new creation is a slave of righteousness and not of sin. Anyone who is a new creation is brand new specie in Christ Jesus. You are not bond to become a slave of sin because Jesus Christ has set you free from the bondage of sin. That is why Jesus says in John 8:36, “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” You are set free from sin to become a slave of righteousness. Therefore, a Christian is expected to live a life of righteousness forever.
Accordingly, a Christian should be able to understand the revelation of who he is in Christ Jesus. Anyone that is born again has actually received a newness of life; that newness of life is in Jesus Christ which makes you a slave of righteousness. With this, you become born again having the nature and character of God. As a slave of righteousness, you become destined for a glorious life of God in Christ Jesus. Take note of the fact that the life of a Christian had been destined for success and victory in Christ Jesus.
Daily Tip: A Christian is a slave of righteousness unto God through Christ Jesus. Shalom!
Golden Text: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
