No Longer Slaves To Sin

No Longer Slaves To Sin
Romans 6:18-19 AMP

18 And having been set free from sin, you have become the slaves of righteousness [of conformity to God’s will and purpose].
19 I am speaking in [familiar] human terms because of your natural limitations [your spiritual immaturity]. For just as you presented your bodily members as slaves to impurity and to [moral] lawlessness, leading to further lawlessness, so now offer your members [your abilities, your talents] as slaves to righteousness, leading to sanctification [that is, being set apart for God’s purpose].

The moment we hear the word slave most minds turn to American History, but slavery is deeper than American History, slavery is a result of "Man History," from the seed of disobedience, altering our original allegiance (Servants of God).

There is an unrest that erupts in the soul of man when sin activity is permitted and until the inner storm in our soul is subdued by the power and presence of God; true clarity of God's purpose is completely distorted.

Subdue - to conquer by force or the exertion of superior power, and bring into permanent subjection; to reduce under dominion.
Distorted - altered from a true, natural, or normal state, shape, or condition.

Romans 7:23 AMP
"but I see a different law and rule of action in the members of my body [in its appetites and desires], waging war against the law of my mind and subduing me and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is within my members."

Before Christ we were slaves to sin, victims of personal pleasure, lewd desires, lawless behavior. But we are No Longer slaves (servants) To Sin, but We Are Slaves (Servants) of God Unto Righteousness, Through Christ Jesus.

Our Prayer
Father, we denounce and subdue a slave mentality to former lust and submit to being servants of holiness, righteousness and sanctification, in Jesus Name, Amen.
