Gotta Serve Somebody

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

JP: I’m showing my age but the message title is from the old Bob Dylan song, “Gotta Serve Somebody“.

The text for our Wednesday night 5/27/09 Bible study is Romans 6:15-23. You may find it helpful to print this text out and using a pen or highlighter circle or mark these key words: “servant (or) slave”, and “present”. The main verb is “… now present (an imperative!) your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness”.

Alva McClain concludes that “Two servitudes” are in view in this text: “[Paul] is going to show in this section from now on that no man can serve two masters. He will either serve sin or he will serve righteousness. He will either serve Satan or he will serve God”.

My notes are available here.
