Slaves to Righteousness, September 2, 2017

by Chuck Hetzler

“You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”  Romans 6:18

When we trusted Jesus, God changed our lives. The Holy Spirit came into us and gave us His life. We have a new nature that now loves the things that God loves. Now we want to please God and do what is right. Even when we fail to make the best choice, we apologize and return to serving our Savior. There is no better Master than Jesus, who leads us to do what is right and good.

Dear Lord, Be my Master and help me follow You to do what is right. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
