SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe typically means that someone does not appreciate all the things God do for them. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 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. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Immanuel our Lord. Romans 6: 15-23 NKJV
FREEDOM – For he who was a slave when he was called by the Lord is the Lord’s freedman; similarly, he who a free man when he was called is Immanuel’s slave. You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brothers, each man, as responsible to God, should remain in the situation God called him to. 1 Corinthians 7: 22-24 NIV
John 8:31-32; Galatians 5: 1 – So Immanuel said to those who believed in him. “If you obey my teaching , you are really my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”; Freedom is what we have – Immanuel has set us free! Stand, then, as free people, and do not allow yourselves to become slaves again. GNT
Take For Granted (Unappreciated) We at VAL-TE’ also believe God wants you to silence the ignorant talk of foolish people by the good things you do. Live as free people; do not, however, use your freedom to cover up any evil, but live as God’s slaves. Respect everyone, love other believers, honor God.
