21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
end (in both verses) = limit, final result of a process
death (v.21) = not merely physical but in its most comprehensive state
become slaves (v.22) — as in verse 18, not the act of the individual, but by God’s power consequent on the individual’s faith
holiness = sanctification as in verse 19
