November 21, 2018 Freedom from sin

By 10:24 AM

Jesus has given us freedom from sin and its consequences.

Revelation 1:5-6  "Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and ruler
 of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his
blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be
glory and power forever (and ever). Amen."

It is not that we will never sin again once we taste the freedom of Jesus Christ. It is
 that we will choose not to stay in sin, not to let the web of sin become a chain
bringing us further away from the truth of who we are.

Romans  8:1-2  "Hence, now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ
Jesus. For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has freed you from the law
of sin and death."

a) Jesus freed us from the law of sin and death by his blood.
b) He has freed us from the slavery of sin with its eternal consequences

Romans 8:19-21 "Indeed, the whole created world eagerly awaits the revelation
of the sons of God. Creation was made subject to futility, not of its own accord
 but by him who once subjected it; yet not without hope, because creation itself
would be set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom
of the children of God."

c) not only have we been set free from sin but all of creation is destined to be
 freed from the slavery of corruption and share with us. There will be a new
 heaven and a new earth. (To be continued)
