Grace for you today !
Christ in me, The Glorious Hope !
“We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and He will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.”
Romans 6:9, 14 NLT
The primary and the foremost freedom that we all need is from the slavery of sin / addiction . We lose control of our own temperament. We lose control over our sensual pleasure. We lose the control over own thoughts . Sometimes some thoughts become so compulsive that we are enslaved to these thoughts and they in turn lead to feelings resulting in actions. This is what Jesus meant when He spoke to the Jews who thought that they were slaves to no man ( John 8:32-36) .
Through Adam came the fall of the whole human race but through Jesus Christ came the deliverance from sin and dominion over sin and death. Hallelujah!
Jesus the Christ alone can deliver us from this vicious cycle of sin and death.
This is because He became sin with our sinfulness at the Cross. He never sinned but He willingly received all our sins and put an end to sin’s dominion.
Secondly, He made us righteous with His own untainted righteousness of God. When we accept this great gift of righteousness of God (even though we haven’t done any righteous act ) we come to realize the authority : our dominion over sin and death.
This acceptance of Truth from our side is expressed through our confession.
So then when we confess, “ I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus” sin loses its grip and righteousness reigns through our confession .
My beloved , one time confession may not result in seeing the desired result . Sometimes it may take vehement and incessant speaking until you walk in complete liberty . Hallelujah! Amen 🙏
