Slaves

today's reading.
Romans 3:23    For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God...
Read the complete passage

think about it.
What is the solution for our sin (3:23-24)? How is it made possible (3:24-25)? Why did God provide this solution (3:25-26)? How is salvation evidence of God's love for us (5:6-8)? As a slave to righteousness, what do you gain (6:22-23)? How have you found freedom in righteousness?

the blog.
Our passages today are all about salvation (and great to use for witnessing, by the way). Each one plainly lays out that we are all sinners but that Christ died for our sins so that we might have the free gift of eternal life (Thank you, Lord!). Now when we get to Romans 6: 20-23, Paul talks about our being "slaves of God." Definitely something worth thinking about.

So what does being a slave of God mean for you? What does it look like in your life? What would you like it to look like? Tami W.

P.S. This is day one of an important series titled facing your final job review which takes an in depth look at the Judgment Seat of Christ, salvation and eternal rewards. You seriously don't want to miss out on this series.
