Righteousness · Sin

righteousness… it’s a choice…

Do not present your members to sin
as instruments of unrighteousness,
but present yourselves to God
as those who have been brought from death to life,
and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
Romans 6:13 ESV

presentverb1a (1): to bring or introduce into the presence of someone especially of superior rank or status… 2: to make a gift to 3: to give or bestow formally…

…present yourselves to God… as instruments for righteousness…

I see it in the word… present… it’s a choice… to gift yourself to God… for His use…

Each day… we have a choice to make…
presenting our bodies to sin…
or to Him…

Each moment… of each day…
will we be used for unrighteousness…
or righteousness…?

…present yourselves to God… as those who have been brought from death to life…

Here’s the good news… that makes the choice easy…

Knowing who He is… and what He’s done for you…
how can you choose anything else…?

Righteousness… it’s a choice….

How will you choose today…?

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?
Romans 6:16 ESV
