Romans 6:15-20 Slavery
Paul’s response to the second question is to continue to use the slavery illustration to push his point and suggest that we are slaves to righteousness- meaning that we should not just be God’s instruments (vs.14), but slaves to righteousness, leading to holiness. This whole line of thinking is progressive, moving ever deeper in devotion and commitment to God, and is the process called sanctification in the life of the Christian. Are you active in this process in your own life, or is your Christian life stagnant?
