Freedom! (part 3 of 4)
Some, in using their FREEDOM to indulge in the things of the flesh, do not realize how enslaved they have become. Jesus came to provide the greatest FREEDOM possible. The greatest FREEDOM we have is the FREEDOM FROM sin and its consequences. It is the FREEDOM Jesus died to provide.
Jesus stated. . .
"(35) The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. (36) So if the Son sets you free, you will BE FREE INDEED." ( John 8:35-36 ESV)
And Paul encouraged. . .
"(1) There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (2) For the law of the Spirit of life has SET YOU FREE IN CHRIST JESUS from the law of sin and death." ( Romans 8:1-2 ESV)
What a refreshing FREEDOM Jesus provides. What peace we can have because we have been SET FREE.
Have a great day rejoicing over our FREEDOM FROM BONDAGE!
