and after you had been set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.
No save can serve two masters. This idea is carried on from the story of the Exodus from Egypt. Israel was redeemed from human bondage to godly bondage. They were set apart as the Father’s special people with rights and responsibilities. We who have been set apart from the rest of the world through the work of Messiah, have also been redeemed and must leave behind the trappings of our old lives and become someone else. We must devote our lives to serving the Kingdom and living for the sake of Heaven every day. To serve the Father, we must know Him and draw close to Him though daily reading and prayer and action.
