“Come, Lord Jesus!”
Romans 7: 24; Revelation 22:20
For just as you offered the parts of yourselves as slaves to moral impurity, and to greater and greater lawlessness, so now offer them as slaves to righteousness, which results in sanctification.”Romans 6:19 HCSB
I am fascinated by how Paul juxtaposes the law/faith and sin/righteousness in the early chapters of the book of Romans.
As I have reflected on these chapters, particularly in chapter 6 verse 19, a thought kept running through my mind:
To the degree which we pursued (and enjoyed) sin before following Jesus, to that same degree (and more so) we must pursue righteousness through the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit!
