Under Gods Command
Dead to sin, Alive in Christ

Romans 6:16-18 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey-whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

In certain skilled crafts, an apprentice works under a master, who trains, shapes, and molds his apprentice in the finer points of his craft. All people choose a master and pattern themselves after him. Without Jesus, we would have no choice-we would have to apprentice ourselves to sin, and the results would be guilt, suffering, an separation from God. Thanks to Jesus, however, we can now choose God as our Master. Following him, we can enjoy new life and learn how to work for him.

Lets Bring it Home: Are you still serving your first master, sin? Or have you apprenticed yourself to God.
