Romans 6:11-16 – Live Free

Romans 6:11-16
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

-Freedom; perhaps the most basic of human rights.  Did you know that in certain countries it is not illegal to attempt an escape from prison because the law recognizes that freedom is so basic to human nature?  Yet when it comes to the most important matters, spiritual matters, many of us continually choose to remain in bondage.  Our chains have been torn asunder by the victory of Jesus Christ.  If you’ve been saved then you have been set free and even if you are not saved, you are free to come to Jesus even now.  So why do we walk around as if we are still bound?  “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” (Galatians 5:1)
