It mightily alters and changes a man! – Thomas Brooks

"Thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin--you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted." -Romans 6:17

“Thanks be to God that, though you used to be
slaves to sin–you wholeheartedly obeyed the
form of teaching to which you were entrusted.”
Romans 6:17

Certainly, gospel-obedience is a grace of much
worth, and of great force upon the whole man;
for when it is once wrought in the heart, it works
conformity to all God’s holy will.

That obedience which springs from saving faith,
is a transforming obedience. It mightily alters
and changes a man
:
from impurity–to purity,
from sin–to sanctity,
from unrighteousness–to righteousness,
from earthly-mindedness–to heavenly-mindedness,
from pride–to humility,
from hypocrisy–to sincerity, etc.

Those who are not savingly changed, are still
in the gall of bitterness, and bond of iniquity.
