Know Your Identity 2
“But praise be to God that though you were the servants of sin, you have now given yourselves freely to that form of teaching under which you were placed; And being made free from sin you have been made the servants of righteousness. I am using words in the way of men, because your flesh is feeble: as you gave your bodies as servants to what is unclean, and to evil to do evil, so now give them as servants to righteousness to do what is holy.” Romans 6:17-19 (BBE)
One of the biggest problems in the earth is an identity crisis and that is why I want you to understand who you are as a Christian.
Yesterday, we learnt that the Christian is not a slave of sin. Understand that if you are a Christian you are not trying to be free from sin, you are free from sin and have become a slave of righteousness.
If you knew who you really are as a Christian, living right should be easier and sin is what should be a struggle.
Romans 6:18 says, “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.”
Being a servant of righteousness means that you cannot help but do good. That is the mentality you need to have as a Christian.
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that, “I am set free from sin. I am a slave of righteousness.”

Romans 6:22 (NKJV)
But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
Galatians 5:16-18 (NKJV)
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Galatians 5:22-25 (NKJV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
