WHO I AM IN CHRIST!
I AM FREE FROM SIN!
Romans 6:18 & 22
And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life
Look how the Message Bible reads:
Offer yourselves to sin, for instance, and it's your last free act. But offer yourselves to the ways of God and the freedom never quits.
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!
HALLELUJAH! FREE even sounds good! :-)
Just like the children of Isreal, we often forget that we were once SLAVES! (to sin)
Our enemy is ALWAYS trying to convince us otherwise. In case he's been working on you telling you lies like "you'll never be free from this sin" Stand up and tell him he's a liar today! YOU ARE SET FREE eternally! You have a "whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more life on the way!" He'll run with his tail between his legs because he's a coward! Live like a FREED one and SPREAD THE WORD! There are still sin-slaves all around us.
