Daily Reading – Psalms 31-33 / Romans 6
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Romans 6:15-16 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
I remember meeting with the pulpit committee of the church I currently pastor. One man, concerned with my beliefs asked, “Do you believe in once saved always saved?” I said, “I sure do.” He said, “You mean to tell me you think you can get saved and live any way you want to?” I said, “Yup!” His mouth almost hit the floor. Then I added, “I believe you can live any way you want to, but I also believe that your “Want To” changes when you get saved.” (P. S. That man is one of my best friends and deacon today.
Paul was asking the church, should we sin because we are not under the law? His answer, “God forbid.” Why not, because our “Want To” has changed.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Do you remember the day
your “Want To” changed?
