with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Servants of Righteousness Sunday, October 18, 2020
Romans 6:18 - What does it mean to be a “slave to righteousness”? Paul explains in Romans 6:18 that we are no longer slaves to sin and that it has no power over us any longer. Instead, we are now slaves to righteousness! Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones details out several truths that we can draw from this one verse. He is clear to point out that we are not saying that there is no sin left in us, that we are free from sinful nature, or that we are free from temptations. There is no choice in this matter of our sanctification because it starts the moment that we believe. Once we believe, our soul yearns with jealous envy for righteousness because we are drawn to the realm of God instead of the realm of sin. The Doctor also warns that many people can have qualities of a Christian but not hold the same doctrines. He mentions that the Pharisees were people like this, creating their own righteousness instead of submitting to God’s righteousness. This practice is ignorant! A man does not understand what morality is and thus we need to lean on the Lord for wisdom. We can rejoice that the Lord who began a good work in us will be faithful to complete this work.
