Don’t you know that if you offer yourselves to someone as obedient
slaves, you are slaves of that one you obey—either of sin leading to
death or of obedience leading to righteousness? But thank God that,
although you used to be slaves of sin, you obeyed from the heart that
pattern of teaching to which you were handed over, and having been
set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.
ROMANS 6:16–18, CSB
