Slaves Of Sin Or Slaves Of God


 
 

Romans 6
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17But 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. 18And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.
20For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

There is no state of being free from all rulership.  God is a better ruler than Satan is.

That is the exact reason that some people claim to not believe in God.  They are willingly ignorant and refuse to acknowledge God.  They know, intuitively, that the relationship is that of submission to authority.

The true deception of the age is the illusion of freedom.  There is no such thing.  Freedom from God is slavery to Satan.

On the positive side, God is love.  There is no love without God.  There are many counterfeits to love, but if you have ever experienced true love, you have touched God.  God created us to be constantly filled and led by His love.  This is the only place of fulfillment.  The rest of what we call existence is a vapor.

For those who have come to God to know God by the one method that God has provided, belief in Jesus as Savior from slavery to Satan, this is written: "The love of God has been poured out through our hearts through the Holy Spirit that hath been given to us.  That's a bit different from religious forms, isn't it?
