Benefits of Salvation

Benefits-of-Salvation-jpg

Scripture: Romans 6:22

 KJV: But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

 GNT: But now you have been set free from sin and are the slaves of God. Your gain is a life fully dedicated to him, and the result is eternal life.

 REFLECTION

Everyone would want a reward for whatever they had to have done, whether it was a secular or spiritual endeavor. Everybody goes to work, does their job well, and eventually expects a reward, which I would call a salary or wages. With hard work and dedication to any organization you may be a part of, there are now additional benefits.

Additionally, if you work for that organization, you are obligated to comply with its demands, which means that you currently serve as its slave. And most employees who don’t want to submit to that authority either work their way out of that organization to be free—but are they really free even if they do so without having a goal or resolve to be financially free? I’ve seen and heard that most employees quit their jobs because they either don’t receive benefits from their employers or are likely ineligible for such benefits. Let’s examine Paul’s comments on the verse for today.

Paul has now demonstrated that succumbing to sin results in death. Paul writes, “but now having been set free from sin,” in verse 22. Paul is once more emphasizing the power each Christian must choose when he writes, “But now,” which is in the present tense and refers to the Roman believers as being free from sin and subject to God. liberated from sin, becoming God’s slaves.

But I’m positive that today’s word is special. Yes! It is because of those things that we used to feel ashamed of before salvation, but this is to our advantage now.  This is how I believe it ought to be.

What advantages did you gain from the actions you are now ashamed of at the time? Death results from those things! The benefit you receive leads to holiness, and the outcome is eternal life, but now that you have been delivered from sin and have been made slaves to God.

 What does it mean to be enslaved to God?

The only historically accurate English translation of the Greek word Doulos, which appears in the Bible, is the word slave. Literally, it means to be someone’s property for all time. Therefore, people are either slaves of God, who enjoy eternal life, or slaves of sin, which results in death. Oh, thank God I’m God’s slave as I look forward to the rewards at the end.

Hello, dear friends. By accepting Jesus Christ immediately, you can also gain from being enslaved to God to have eternal reward. You can be saved by simply confessing to Him wherever you are. What good is it for a man to gain everything in this world if he loses his soul to damnation for all time? Save yourself by accepting Jesus today.

Cheers……
