Eternal Life Starting Now

Romans 6:19-23

Of course, being human it's hard to understand how powerful this slavery is. Back when you were a slave to sin you were kept from the freedom of righteousness. And what good did that slavery do you? When we look back we are ashamed of those things and their destructive power in our lives. But God has liberated us from sin's mastery and power and you now gladly submit to God as your new master. This fruitful relationship is having just the opposite effect; putting us back together and giving us an eternal life. Sin only produces destruction in us but God graciously gives us Christ Jesus as our new master and along with Him His powerful vibrant eternal life.
