The word in Romans 6 tells us to use our body as a weapon of righteousness. It contrast how we use to use it as a weapon of evil. We all know how to sin. I was not exempt from the curse, I had no problem turning my body over to sin as a slave. But in Christ I have been freed from that power and can now offer my body as a slave to righteousness. In sin I profited nothing and at the end of every fancy, every accomplishment was death. Yet that did not deter me from the repeated exercise of futility. No all the more I was eager to put the cloak of death on more firmly.
Now Christ gives me the offer to turn my body through obedience over to righteousness to be His weapon where the end is abundance now and eternal life ultimately. At the end of every fancy and every assignment is life. Shall I shrink back from its demands? I never resisted the demands of death. No all the more my slavery toward obedience should be as loyal as a heart can be. Dorean was formed as a weapon of righteousness by the Lords command. Shall I not give my body over to its full demands? Life and victory await even if I pass through suffering. It is still better for me to suffer toward life than to enjoy pleasures on the way to destruction. I am fond of my body being made a weapon of righteousness. Lord, wield me often! Amen!
