Delusions of Grandeur
Jesus Christ could set us free.
Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:34-36
Jesus tells us in this Scripture that He has set us free from the slavery of sin something we were powerless to do ourselves and when we tried just like Paul did in Romans7, we found out just how wretched we were as he did but like Paul we realized Jesus was the only answer.
How wonderful that in Romans 8 and other Scriptures Paul confirms as we now know that by the empowering of the Holy Spirit we can put our flesh to death which causes us to sin by choosing to walk in Truth and righteousness and when we do we are empowered to by The Holy Spirit to do so.
This wonderful Truth is something Satan, who is like a roaring lion looking for someone to destroy, tried to keep us from finding out about so we would believe we would always be slaves to sin and either give up and justify the wrong we do, blame others or keep trying in our own strength not to sin and fail.
1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.
We have been set free … How good is that !
