Freedom in Jesus
by Gregory John Monroe  
1/12/2014 / Education


Being a sinner, I am declared guilty by God's Law. Being guilty, the Law condemns me. Being condemned, the Law sentences me to death.

However, because of Jesus, I have been released from sin's guilt, condemnation, and penalty of death. Those things have all been placed on Him instead. This, of course, is true for all who are Christian.

Practically, this means there needn't be prolonged despair upon committing a sin. Frustration shouldn't fester and lead to beating up ourselves when we make a mistake. To do so is to invite satanic suggestions to give up on being a Christian.

Instead, we should exercise our freedom in Jesus by applying our faith. Being truly repentant, we confess our sin knowing that God will forgive us and cleanse us from that unrighteousness.

So, if a sin is committed, rather than nursing anguish and hopelessness, we are free to return to living unto God. In faith, we move on knowing that the Author and Perfecter of our faith will finish the work He's started within us.

In other words, freedom in Jesus is to be free to make a mistake, as opposed to constantly walking around with weighted mental chains, fearing that a sin might occur.

Now, I'm not saying there is a freedom to sin, as in an intentional lifestyle of sinning. I am saying that if one is truly seeking God's righteousness (God knows the heart), but slips and then confesses, God is willing to immediately put that sin's guilt, burden, and condemnation on Jesus.

Freedom in Jesus is knowing and accepting that God is patient, kind, merciful, and faithful as we learn to walk and grow in the Christian life.

Many will be shocked by Gregory's book, The Three Angels' Message. It ID's Antichrist and the "mark of the beast," and the role both are playing today in the end-time issue of worship. The book's biblical & historical proof can't be denied. Get more info now at http://www.tinyurl.com/6pk3pyq
