Romans 6:21-22 “But then what benefit (return) did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? [None] for the end of those things is death. But now since you have been set free from sin and have become the slaves of God, you have your present reward in holiness and its end is eternal life.”


When we think back to our old lives before Jesus came in and transformed us, we realize how futile a lot of things were that we had in our lives. Things we once thought were important, we now see aren’t important at all in the light of ‘eternity’. We see now that those things had no benefit for us.

Our whole lives take a turn around when Jesus comes along. Sometimes it may feel like Jesus has turned our world upside down—and that can be difficult. Things that were once our security, no longer are. Things that were familiar to us, we no longer feel comfortable with. This can be a really difficult time, but later on down the track, we can see the things we once held on to could never benefit us at all, in fact, could have led to heartbreak.

When Christ comes into our lives, we become slaves to God instead of sin. He turns us in a new direction that results in eternal life with Him.

If you are in this place right now, continue to trust in God because He knows what He’s doing, and you will see later on the beauty of the Lord in your life. Just hang in there. He is working in you, and you won’t be in this place forever.
