Do you recognize the connection between righteousness and grace?
For sin may not have rule over you: because you are not under law, but under grace. (Romans 6.14 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
And being made free from sin you have been made the servants of righteousness. I am using words in the way of men, because your flesh is feeble: as you gave your bodies as servants to what is unclean, and to evil to do evil, so now give them as servants to righteousness to do what is holy. (Romans 6.18-19 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
We are all servants to something or many things. Do not be offended by this thought. It is part of our humanness. Instead, consider what actions keep you a servant to the wrong things and cause you to regret them. Which of these are you a servant to:
Sin? With sin, you lose touch with righteousness.
Righteousness? As free as possible of sin? Results in our ability to live within the Grace God and Jesus Christ bestowed.
For the reward of sin is death; but what God freely gives is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6.23 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
What is your choice? Which path are you or will you commit to?
Loving Jesus. You and our Father connected me to righteousness and grace with your sacrifice. As Romans states, I have eternal life because of you. But today, I seek to understand the power of righteousness and the glory of the grace I move within. This understanding propels me to be more in this life than I considered before I began understanding. I am a flower blossoming in your glory, and I am grateful. Please help me continue to unfold your mysteries and live the life you desire. I thank you, Lord, for the love you bestow on me every minute of the day. Amen.
