Jesus set us free from condemnation, guilt and shame, fear of punishment and sin, and we no longer have to conform to the pressures of our culture or worry about what others think. We are free! But, Paul exhorts us to use our freedom for good - to love and serve one another and those around us. Oh how we need to be with the Father, to be filled by His love, in order to love those around us!
We desire to be people committing all of our hearts to Jesus. This is where the Spirit of His Son resides (Gal 4:6, 2 Cor 1:22). Therefore, we can only live as transformed people by allowing our hearts, through the leading of His Spirit, to set the vision for our lives. Only then, will we be able to truly call ourselves followers of Jesus; when we are led by His Spirit.
Through God’s grace, and Christ’s redeeming work on the cross for our sins, we no longer have to live under the law. Through faith, we are no longer imprisoned, but our sin is now imprisoned as we get to live free in Christ.
