I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness. When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.__________________________
It is impossible to be neutral. Every person has a master — either God or sin. A Christian is not someone who cannot sin, but someone who is no longer a slave to sin. He or she belongs to God. You are free to choose between two masters, but you are not free to manipulate the consequences of your choices. Each of the two masters pays with his own currency. The currency of sin is death. That is all you can expect or hope for in life without God. Christ's currency is eternal life — new life with God that begins on earth and continues forever with God. What choice have you made?
