4/02/23 Romans 6:15-23 The Freedom of Serving Christ
Bishop Ken Ross joined us on Sunday and continued our series through Romans. Paul continues his explanation that because we live in Christ, we are to live righteously. Paul refutes the critics of the Gospel who would say that if we have been set free from the law, then we are free to sin. Paul explains what true freedom is. Freedom and joy are found in obedience to God, not in doing whatever we want. We have been freed from slavery to sin, in order that we may be slaves of righteousness, which is itself true freedom. Let us remember the work of Christ who has made us his own and has called us to live in him by the Holy Spirit.
