But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life , eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.
Romans 6:23 MSG
I love the message version of this verse. Sin is easy, but you don’t have to listen to it! We can stop listening to Satan and start listening to Jesus. I known that it seems hard, impossible at times even, and it is! But still do able. The group Old Dominion has a new song out called Some People Do , and it is about people changing. And how yes a lot of people don’t change but some of us do. It was such a sweet song to hear because we do live in a society where we are told the people can’t change and sadly that is because a lot of people don’t change. But I am living proof that people can change. And if you really want to you can change too. A more abundant life awaits us when we listen to Jesus.
