"No Longer Slaves..."
“No Longer Slaves…”
So many professing believers are slaves.
Slaves to sin in all its varied forms.
Hear the Word of the Lord…
For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection,
knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;
for he who has died is freed from sin.
Since we as true believers have become united with Him (Jesus) in His death…
We will also be in His resurrection.
We will be resurrected as He was.
The old self is crucified with Him.
That our body of sin might be done away with.
So that we are no longer slaves to sin.
We can refuse to sin.
We can walk in liberty, in freedom, in holiness…as the Lord instructs.
If we are enslaved to sin, then we have not died to self.
The one who has died to self/to the flesh is freed from sin.
By the grace of God, we are no longer slaves to sin.
