WORD FOCUS: FREE (2)

 

TEXT: ROMANS 5:18 “Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life…”

This simply means that when you accepted Jesus, God put His stamp of approval on you by putting His Spirit in you. Along with His approval, He gives you a guarantee that you now belong to Him and that he has an inheritance for you to partake of- in this life and the next one too. This is wonderful news! However, this does bring up a question: can we keep living sinful lives after we get saved? Absolutely not! Romans 6:12 says “shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it”. You see, your old nature [old self] is now dead, you are a new creation who is alive unto God. The old nature was a slave to sin but now that your old self has died and you have been raised up as a new creature in Christ Jesus, you have been freed from sin. You are now dead to sin.

Acts 3:19 tells us when we make Jesus our Lord and Saviour, “our sins are blotted out”, That means they are erased. God does not remember them anymore; therefore, sin does not have control over you anymore. You and Jesus are now in control of your life! The more you yield to Him living in you, the more His life will flow through you. Furthermore, when a person, genuinely receives Jesus as Lord and Savior, they do not want to live in sin any longer. They want to turn from their past ways and live a new way. Romans 2:4 tell us, “the goodness of God leads you to repentance” In essence, the word “repentance “means a reversal or change of direction. In other words, it’s a 180 degree change of direction. You were going one way, following the path of sin and the lust of the flesh, but now you have turned and have begun to follow God and His ways. Romans 2:4] it really boils down to this: when you start enjoying the life that God has for you, you do not want to turn back to your old ways of living. God truly loves us and only wants the best for our lives. He is a good God and there is one thing you can be assured of – He will always be good to you!
