The Apostle Paul on whom we serve :
Know YOU not, that to whom YOU yield yourself servants to obey, his servants YOU are to whom YOU obey;
weather of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But God be thanked that YOU were the servants of sin but YOU have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered YOU.
Being then made free from sin, YOU became the servants of righteousness.
Romans 6: 16-18
God our Father and the Father of Jesus or Lord has made Jesus the standard of righteousness.
Before we believed the doctrine that God raised His only begotten son Jesus from the dead and Confess Jesus is Lord, meaning Lord of the Cosmos, we were in spiritual darkness. The mind on its own cannot discern spiritual matters. Now that we have believed the doctrine or teaching of the good news of spiritual fellowship thru Jesus, we have received holy spirit administered to us by Jesus our Lord.
We are justified and made righteous by Jesus our Lord.
Do Christians commit murder? Is this not a work of darkness? This is why the Apostle Paul commands us to walk in the spirit. When we are walking in the spirit we are walking in love.
