Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. – Romans 6:18

We must serve some one. If we are not under one master we must be under another. Becoming a Christian is changing masters; it is coming out from under the yoke of sin and accepting the sway of Christ.

We have it here: “Being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness.” Paul was himself an illustration of this. He was on his way to Damascus, breathing slaughter against the Christians.

Like a flash appeared before him a glorious Being who could not be less than divine. “Who art Thou?” “I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.” Instantly Saul saw what a terrible mistake he had been making, and at once he was at the feet of Him whom he had been persecuting. He had a new Master, and his whole life was surrendered.

Too many people, when they accept Christ, do not bring their whole life with them. Paul did, and that is what every one who follows Christ should do. We should become as earnest as Christians as we were before in our service of the world.
