Today's Verse : Romans 6:17


June 17, 2012

But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin,
you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were
-- Romans 6:17

Paul stresses in Romans 6 that obedience to the will of God does
not mean we are being manipulated or put under a bunch of arbitrary
rules or formal laws. No, obedience of our grace-filled God is
liberation -- liberation from the bondage of sin and the certainty
of death, liberation from the haunting memories of sin and its
effects, as well as liberation to be the people we were created to

Heavenly Father, my head understands that being obedient to your
will is a blessing and not a restriction. I know you have given me
your truth to protect and save me. Forgive me for sometimes
doubting and looking elsewhere for the joy and delight that only
you provide. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
