10-25-2023 Romans 6 V-1618 Slaves obey obedience they crave
The Letter to the Romans Chapter Six v- 16 thru 18
16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, although you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient from the heart to the pattern of teaching to which you were entrusted. 18 Freed from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness.
Do you have a strong belief in righteousness and the positive impact it can have on your life? Many people find fulfillment and purpose in following a moral and righteous path but it’s important to note that the concept of being a “slave to righteousness” can be interpreted in different ways. Some may view it as a commitment to living a virtuous life, while others may see it as a surrendering of personal freedoms or self-rule. It’s essential to find a balance that aligns with your values and allows you to lead a fulfilling life. I often meet men and women who have given up everything to follow Jesus and to live a life of Salvation sharing Christ’s goodwill. Yesterday I shaved our friend and Christ celebrant of more than 50 years as a Catholic priest giving his all to living a life of Charity and life called to the Eucharist of Jesus Christ. Simple acts of charity. Amen.
Regarding the outcome of sin, it’s worth acknowledging that people have different beliefs and perspectives on the consequences of their actions. While some may view sin as leading to death or negative outcomes, others may focus on the potential for personal growth, redemption, and forgiveness. Ultimately, the interpretation of righteousness, sin, and their consequences is deeply personal and can vary among individuals and religious or philosophical beliefs. It’s important to respect and understand different perspectives while seeking your own understanding of what brings you fulfillment and leads to a meaningful life. Give to life what you expect yourself. Sin is death. Salvation is respect for living a life of love, faith and hope of His grace Redeemed by goodwill. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. Kairos 56. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born has been answered; she is 23 weeks pregnant with a little boy. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.
