FREEDOM FROM SIN

Freedom-from-Sin

 

Jesus wants us living free from any form of bondage, enslaving force, or compulsive influence that causes us to sin. Jesus has already purchased that freedom for us and it is freedom from all sin and its evil influence. Galatians 1:4 tells us, “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.” Sin is not bigger than the work of Jesus to redeem and deliver us. If sin was bigger than Jesus then why is it that once a person decides to get saved, satan cannot stop them, even though they may have had a past life in sin. He cannot stop those who once were slaves to sin from becoming servants of righteousness. God’s work in Jesus in redeeming us is greater than satan’s work in Adam in the Fall of man.

 

Our freedom from sin is not just forgiveness of sins at the point of salvation (Ephesians 1:7) or at the point of confession of our sin for cleansing after salvation (1 John 1:9), but total freedom from its power ruling our life. We have freedom from it and do not have to sin. Romans 6:11-14 says, “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” Sin does not have to rule any child of God and we do not have to yield to sins desires or lusts. Admit and acknowledge your sin and experience victory and freedom over it. Obtain mercy at the throne of God’s grace and help in your time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

 

Very often we try to call sin something that sounds nicer or that lessens its darkness like, “I have this challenge,” or “I have this issue,” rather than calling it what the Bible calls it which is sin. Why does that make a difference? If we identify it as sin, then we can overcome it because there’s a cure for sin, and His name is Jesus. Sin may be bigger than any of us in the natural but it is not bigger than Jesus or who we are in Him. He is still our victory over sin, He is still our Deliverer, and He is still our Sanctification.  God by His power is also able to keep us from falling as Jude 24, and 25 says, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
