and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. (1 Peter 2:24 NASB)
God has given us freedom, so why do we continue to sit distraught in our chains?
Is it because we fear tribulation?
Is it because we cannot let go of sin?
Is it because we feel like God won’t lead us?
Is it because we feel like God won’t come through and make all work for good?
Well, I’ve learned that God will protect us, He will lead us, and He will work all for good.
I had a hard time seeing that, and I still do today. But nobody is perfect, that’s why we need the forgiveness of Jesus!
Sin is a cell. You feel comfy and you feel there’s no need to leave. The door is wide open! Then, suddenly, the door slams shut and it’s not so comfy anymore. And, suddenly, it’s too late to leave now.
We need Jesus.
He holds the key to freedom.
If we have Jesus, we are free.
That is why He bore our sin and died on the cross.
We are free!
Free at last!
Sincerely, Faithfully, Truthfully,
