When we come to personal faith in Jesus Christ we become “slaves to righteousness.” That is what the Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 6:18. Paul makes it abundantly clear, however, that this kind of slavery is a great joy. Paul uses the whole book of Romans to help us see that living in sin was a dreadful kind of slavery that was destroying everything beautiful in our lives and holding us in the most repressive bondage. Being “slaves to righteousness” was the very opposite, it is a life full of the greatest joy. God had created us in the Garden for this kind of joy, and by bringing us to faith in the Savior, he brought us back into that joy.
