Freed to Serve
February 8, 2015 Speaker: Paul Toews Series: Romans: The Letter By Which the Church Stands or Falls
Topic: Sermon Scripture: Romans 6:15–6:23
No one who is under grace has a cavalier attitude toward sin for they have been set free from sin. Now, they seek to serve their new master, righteousness, by being obedient to God's holy standard. We are slaves of the one we obey, either sin or righteousness. Everyone obeys one or the other, but in order to serve righteousness God has to do a heart work in the believer. The fruit of this new heart obedience is eternal life. If we do have a new master and have a new heart, how do we deal with our discouragement over besetting sins or meager progress in holiness? How do we further obedience to our new master?
