“But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.”ROMANS 6:22-23 MSG
It is Jesus clothed in the white garments of resurrection, bearing the fresh scars of the crucifixion declaring to the universe that the power of sin is broken.
The power of sin in your life can feel like a noose around your neck that day by day begins to tighten until you feel trapped, choked and bound.
It is a lie.
You do not have to live in its bondage anymore.
Through Jesus, you are set free.
The power and control has sin has been broken.
You are free from its endless demands, requirements, small print and a false sense of control.
Jesus took that noose upon His own neck for you.
He took the penalty it demanded, death.
Then He conquered death in a blaze of glory and held freedom in His hands.
Wherever shame lurks and condemnation whispers, wherever fear and anxiety choke, wherever lies and rejection linger – Jesus is.
He is love, power, mercy and forgiveness.
He washes away the stains of your past and brings to you new hope for your future.
The power of sin has been broken.
You are set free to live life saturated in His love and filled with His power.
How will you live the truth of it today?
