A Daily Devotion for Thursday, August 11



Romans 6:22


But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.


So, if I have ever wondered about how the truth sets me free, this verse will remind me. I do not need to live my life worrying what will happen to me after I die. As a believer, I am free from worrying about sin and its repercussions for me. I still must make good decisions, but accept mistakes and repent. But with the Holy Spirit, and the forgiveness of my sins, I remain on track, a “slave of God” and on track for an eternity with God, as promised.


Holy Father, you have truly set me free for eternity. I am sorry when I disappoint, after all you have given. Amen

Romans 6:22

But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness and the results, eternal life.


We were created in the image of God and he called us to work with him for the creation. But partnership requires trust, so God gave us the freedom to make our own choices. Sadly, the first humans made the choice to trust their own wisdom over God's. Every body has a master, either God or sin.

A believer is still tempted by sin, but is no longer a slave to it . Paul states here the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus. When…

Romans 6:22 NLT Translation: but now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. The Message Translation: But now you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now with more and more life on the way! I love the words “discovered the delight of listening to God.” What a wonderful way of telling us to become slaves to God. Our group of transformers do delight in discovering God‘s word on many topics week after week. We kn…

Jesus died for us and set us free. His birth, death and resurrection gave us the means to be set free of the sins of Adam and Eve and to be born again in him. This freedom gives us the means to keep temptation at bay and do the best we can to stay free of sin. In this we are promised eternal life with God in heaven.


Dearest Lord, thank you for sending your son to us to wipe sin out of our lives. With his death I…

Romans 6:22

I preached on this verse over 25 years ago at St. Mark’s UMC in Staten Island. The sermon title was “Free to be a Slave.” In this hypersensitive age of offense, the mere suggestion that one should willingly be a slave to something is met with shrieks of indignation, yet many of the same folks shrieking are slaves to technology, work, sex, substances or marketplace trends. We were given the free will to choose to what we will be a slave, but there is no escaping the human condition to be a slave to something. The only choice that offers spiritual and eternal freedom is the choice made for God.


Prayer - God of freedom, let my choice…
