Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey2--whether you are slaves to sin,3 which leads to death,4 or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

You have been set free from sin8 and have become slaves to righteousness.9
