BROTHERS and SISTERS, having been set free from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness for holiness.
When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. So what fruit did you then have from the things of which you now are ashamed? The end of those things is death. But now that you have been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
