False Freedom

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 6:20-23

It is all about bearing fruit. Paul is saying that when you were a slave to sin, you could do whatever you wanted to do. But there was no fruit there, and the end of all of that freedom is death. The second death is the only thing that awaits those who are not in Christ, those who have never accepted Him as LORD and as Savior.

What is the Second Death, you ask? It is the Lake of Fire. It is hell, where the flames will burn forever, and there is torment and gnashing of teeth. It is a place you do not want to go.

Listen, you can spend all your life working for money, or you can spend all your money working for life. But in the end, what will it profit, or what will it benefit you if you gain the whole world but lose your soul?

There is absolutely nothing that you can offer Jesus on Judgment Day in exchange for your soul. No amount of money or abundance of things will suffice. Jesus is not interested in anything that you have.

The truth is you have nothing that was not given to you in the first place. Therefore, there is nothing that is worth your soul.

Everything belongs to the LORD. The earth and its fullness are the LORD’s. The cattle on a thousand hills are all the LORD’s.

So, tell me, O’ mere man, what do you have that was not given to you? Or what do you possess that makes you better than anyone else?

We must all give an account, and every knee shall bow in worship, and every tongue shall proclaim, to the glory of God, that Jesus Christ is LORD of all, and that He is master of everything.

  • There is none like Him
  • There is none besides Him
  • All is beneath Him
  • For He created all things
  • And all things are from Him and for Him
