Romans 6:1-7

When Bob was a boy he was extremely shy. Nothing filled his heart with terror as much as knowing he had to stand up in front of the class and give a report. Bob recalls being “sick” on certain days to avoid the torture of public speaking.

Then God called him to be a pastor. What do pastors do? They preach sermons, teach Bible studies, conduct funerals and weddings. They get up continually in front of people. Bob is now retired after decades of doing the kinds of things he once thought he could never do. What happened? God wanted his life to go in a certain direction. Bob obeyed, and God removed the paralyzing fear. He did something Bob could not do for himself.

God wants us to be holy. He wants us to stop being slaves to sin. Yet no matter how hard we try we cannot do it ourselves. Be encouraged! God knows your heart. You will be amazed at what God can do in your life!
