Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God.

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourdelves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of docrtine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin you became salves of righteousness. Romans 6:15-18. 13_guy-chained
Obeyed, hupakouo, Strong’s # 5219: to hear as a subordinate, listen attentively, obey as a subject, answer and respond, submit without reservation. To listen to something hearken (Acts 12:13) ; mostly it means to obey, (duh) give heed, follow, yield, of servants, soldiers, students (Matt. 8:27; Mark 1:27; Luke 8:25; Eph. 6:1,5).
The word thus contains the ideas of hearing, responding, and obeying.
This word also refers to the manifestation of faith as revealed in humble acceptance of the Gospel message (Acts 6:7; Rom.6:17; 10:16; 1 Thess. 1:8; 3:14; Heb.5:9).
Slaves of sin do not recognize the obligation to righteousness, but rather abondon themselves to a process of moral deteration, which has death as its end. Slaves of God, on the other hand devote themselves to holiness, a road that leads to everlasting life.

      Good to hear from you. Yes sin is not something the present church movement cares to mention. I for one enjoy being a slave to Jesus. He is the master and i rejoice in His love.
