Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?
In this life, you can only serve one master: either yourself, or God. You can give into temptations and live for yourself, putting the Lord in second place and ignoring what’s right and wrong, or you can devote your life to your Creator and Savior, living how Christ would live. You’re still going to mess up from time to time, because you’re human, and as human’s we’re inherently sinful and flawed. But at the end of the day, what matters is who you give your allegiance to. Will you run into the arms of temporary, worldly pleasure, ignoring the Holy Spirit that God has put in you, or will you run into His arms, determined to become more like Christ every day?
