Daily devotional: Free from sin--from death to eternal life

Scripture
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
Romans 6:22 NIV

Observation
What an awesome gift of God to be freed from sin and given eternal life with Him!

Application
Romans 6:12-13: Therefore, do not let sin reign in my mortal body so that I obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of my body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer myself to God, as one who has been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of my body to Him as instruments of righteousness.

Prayer
Lord, thank you so much for freeing me from sin's grasp that would lead me to death. Thank you for freely giving me eternal life through Your precious Son, Jesus! I give myself to You, to live in righteousness that leads to holiness. Thank you for the power of Jesus and the indwelling Holy Spirit, who enables me to turn from sin and be Your slave. Please life and love and lead in me and through me! I love you!
