16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were committed. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
Here is a PDF of the entire message taught on Sunday at Vision Calvary Chapel:
Paul came to Athens from Berea; it was a journey of approximately 222 miles! Paul was committed to preaching and teaching Jesus Christ and Him crucified every where he traveled. He was a true apostle. Athens was a pagan, corrupt, idolatrous college town of about 50,000 people. Philosophers, scholars, students, and citizenry claimed to be tolerant, open minded, and educated. They lived to hear something “new”, yet ironically, when the new Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ was declared to them, the majority rejected it. May we be encouraged by Paul’s commitment to live, obey, and share the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May this message encourage you to serve our Lord Jesus and love Him more and more. God bless you.
