romans 6:20-23

// For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. //

there are things i care about that i did not care about before. moments come where i find myself burdened by new responsibilities, new priorities, new ways of thinking. but think not of egypt, that place of death! no, no – look forward to that God-promised land. what did i have before this? surely only endless dying, yet now Christ has broken in with life.

no, no – look forward to that God-promised land!
