It's true that our freedom allows us to do anything, but that doesn't mean that everything we do is good for us.
I'm free to do as I choose, but I choose to never be enslaved to anything. 1 Corinthians 6:12. TPT
Even though Im dead to sin and alive in Christ
I am not a robot..
God will always give us the freedom to choose because thats what Love does.
Like it or not ... We all have a free will .
As we choose to believe the Love that God has for us and we choose to believe who God says we now are in Christ then Grace will continue to transform us so that our desires begin to actually change from the inside out.
I may be free to do a-lot of stuff, but Ive actually lost my appetite for a-lot of stuff!
Ive also learned that sin is not my friend !
Sin may not be my nature, but I know that sin still seeks to enslave me and hurt me.
Im reminded of what God said to Cain in Genesis
sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” Genesis 4:7
Sin was never suppose to rule over us , we are called to rule over it!
But sin still seeks to rule! Sin still tries to convince us that we must obey its voice, but we who are in Christ are no longer sins slave!!
Sin will often come around like an old boss trying to bark orders and tell you what to do, just tell it to shut up ! You don’t work for sin anymore nor do you obey its orders.
Sin is kind of like sticking your hand in a fire the fire does not care if you are righteous in Christ or not it will still burn you!
Those who think that Grace gives them freedom to Sin do not understand God‘s love or Gods grace.
God has created me to be a son not a slave!!
Grace does not give us freedom to sin, but freedom from the dominion of sin. Romans 6:14
We do not have to answer to sins every beckon call
When sins voice comes around tell it to shut up ! You are no longer sins slave.. your a child of God
Put off the old and put on the new you in Christ..
Im seeing that its really all about renewing our mind to who we now are in Christ..sin no longer has dominion over me.
Im not an old sinner saved by grace.. Im a new creation in Christ..
The moment you receive Christ the old is gone and the new has come..
Now we have to update our minds to line up with our new reality in Christ.. listen to what Paul says in Romans 6:16
Don't you realize that grace frees you to choose your own master?
But choose carefully, for you surrender yourself to become a servant-bound to the one you choose to obey.
If you choose to love sin, it will become your master, and it will own you and reward you with death.
But if you choose to love and obey God, he will lead you into perfect righteousness. Romans 6:16
We are no longer slaves to sin. We are free to follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
We continue to embrace and acknowledge our new creation realty in Christ.. we are not in sin , we are now in Christ..
