The Fruit That Leads To Eternal Life
Coffee With God: February 11th, 23 | Romans 6:22
“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.”
If there is one message that the church needs to hear in 2023, it’s this: if you belong to Jesus, you are not the same person you were before. When you were baptized into Christ, the old you died. Are you still brushing up against the old you now and then? The flesh of a Christian is like a corpse that won’t lie down. Rest assured, it is dead. Now it just needs to be buried.
But don’t worry, burying your flesh is not the work of your flesh! It’s not something you do on your own. It’s a work of the Spirit, and most of that work happens in your mind. Let Romans 6 be your starting point. Get this truth into your thinking at all costs: you are not who you used to be. You are no longer sin’s slave, bound and destined to obey him. You belong to God, purchased with the blood of the lamb. You are now a slave to righteousness, bound and destined to walk in the good works God has prepared for you. Enjoy getting to know the new you.
