Romans 6:17-18 ASV
But thanks be to God, that, whereas ye were servants of sin, ye became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto ye were delivered; and being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness.

We can never be the lord of our own lives. Anytime that we become the lord of our own lives, we will tend to become the servants of sin, lust, pleasure, world, money; servants of everything but God.
How are we servants of sin? We were born in sin. Because we decided and desired to continue to live in an atmosphere and attitude of sin, what will come out through our lives is also all about sin.
If you have made the decision to become obedient from your heart to that form of teaching, then it is the teaching about the Grace of Jesus Christ, what He did on the cross for you and me which will deliver us from that sin
You cannot be delivered from sins from being servants of sin and not be serving anything else. It is so necessary for you not just stop serving sin but start serving God. What happens when you start serving God is that you automatically become servants of righteousness.
You need to be planted in Christ. You need to come to a place where you begin to serve God day in and day out. When you serve in that position, righteousness will automatically begin to manifest through your life without you doing anything.
The change happens when you begin to obey the teaching.
I pray that you will make that decision today and say “Lord Jesus I give You my life, I want to live my life not for the pleasure of the sin, I want to live a life for You so that I will ultimately become a servant of righteousness.”
God bless you.
