Free Indeed

The only true freedom I shall ever know is found in Jesus Christ. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36, KJV). Other versions say “through and through”. If He has freed me from sin, then I am liberated through and through. It is a thorough work―not a partial one. His work in me will always be one that calls for obedience and perseverance. “Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:4, NASV). Continually growing in His grace, I will not lack. What is true in the spiritual realm will be true in the physical. Sin will no longer be my master because I have been set free by His grace (Romans 6:14).

“Sin didn’t, and doesn’t, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it’s sin versus grace, grace wins hands down. All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that’s the end of it. Grace, because God is putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life—a life that goes on and on and on, world without end” (Romans 5:20b-21 MSG),

My deliverance from sin is completely found in the redemptive work of His grace. The spiritual maturity to stand against it comes through perseverance to study and apply His Word, through prayer, and through the power of His indwelling Spirit. I choose to live an obedient and holy life, and His grace empowers my choice. There will always be temptations, threats, and adversity, but by His grace I shall prevail through any battle that comes my way. His grace shall prevail against any temptation or threat or circumstance. He will empower my lifestyle choices and help me stand strong in the miracle of His grace.
