Under Gods Command

 Dead to sin, Alive in Christ

Romans 6:13-14 Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. (14) For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. 

The phrase “instruments of wickedness” referred to a tool or a weapon.  Our skills, capabilities, and bodies can serve many purposes, good or bad.  In sin, every part of our bodies are vulnerable.  In Christ, every part can be an instrument for service.  It is the one to whom we offer our service that makes the difference.  We are like lasers that can burn destructive holes in steel places or do delicate cataract surgery.

Lets Bring it Home:  Will you give yourself completely to God, asking him to put you to good use for his glory?
