But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
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 to our 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 be!
Heavenly Father, thank you for your grace and freedom from sin!
Forgive me for sometimes doubting and looking elsewhere for the joy and delight that only you provide. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
