Eternal Life

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Romans 6:15–23.

What then? Should we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? Absolutely not! Don’t you know that if you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of that one you obey—either of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness? But thank God that, although you used to be slaves of sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching to which you were handed over, and having been set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness. I am using a human analogy because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you offered the parts of yourselves as slaves to impurity, and to greater and greater lawlessness, so now offer them as slaves to righteousness, which results in sanctification. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness. So what fruit was produced then from the things you are now ashamed of? The outcome of those things is death. But now, since you have been set free from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification—and the outcome is eternal life! For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

How does what you learned throughout the week inform what this passage says about your new life in the Spirit?

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

FOCUS:

How do you see the life of the Spirit manifested in your local church? How do you see the Holy Spirit’s work in the global church?

PRAY:

Lord, grant my siblings in Christ in this city, in the US, and around the world an increased awareness of your Spirit’s abiding presence in them and of his work through them.
