Romans 6:17-18 (KJV)  
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Because Maxine loved and wanted to please God in all things,  she did not rest until she put the matter of wanton iniquity in her life to rest. As she sought to be permanently free from the slavery of sin,  she learned that the way to stay free from the slavery of sin was for her to be delivered and made a servant of righteousness.  She submitted herself to discipleship and accountability. She learned and unlearned a lot of things through the doctrine of Christ. This is how Maxine became totally free and able to fulfill God's call upon her life.

We see from today's Bible verses that it was by obeying the doctrine delivered to them that the believers were free from slavery to sin and made servants of righteousness. Remember that if a person is delivered from slavery to sin but not made a servant of righteousness,  he would go to back to his slavery to sin.

What then was this doctrine delivered to believers by the Apostles that made for permanent freedom from the dominion of sin?
This doctrine can simply be called the Doctrine of Christ. We can see in 2 John 1:9 that it is those who abide in the doctrine of Christ that have both the father and the son. The doctrine of Christ will ultimately cause people to be filled with God. In 1 Timothy 1:3, we can see that this doctrine accords with godliness(it makes godless people godly). We can see in Hebrews 6:1-2 that there are six foundational principles of the doctrine of Christ.  They are Repentance from dead works, Faith towards God, Doctrine of Baptisms, Laying of hands, Resurrection of the dead, and Eternal Judgment.
In order to properly receive the doctrine of Christ and walk in the liberty it brings, a believer must be given to discipleship, accountability, and learning.

The doctrine of Christ brings salvation,  deliverance,  holiness, and causes believers to walk in their inheritance as sons of God(see The Obadiah 1:17).
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to submit to discipleship and enjoy permanent freedom in Christ (see John 8:31-32).
-Abraham Damilola Arigi
