Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. (Romans 6:16)
Being reborn in Jesus Christ is a huge and freeing step for anyone. If you’ve ever been a slave to anything (drugs, alcohol, money, sex…) you know the weight of this statement. It’s like living in a fog of lies and slowly the fog lifts to reveal the life you’d always hoped for. Breaking the chains of sin and living a life chasing after a heart that fully reflects Jesus is truly living!
