Here’s what I need you to do: set aside 4 minutes. Go ahead, look at your watch, your calendar, whatever you have, and take 4 minutes to watch this mini movie by Journey Box Media. Turn up the volume and be washed away by the healing that comes when we learn and accept the truth that we are new creations who are FREE from the power of sin! This is no joke. This is the truth of the Gospel. Jesus has set us free from the power of sin. This is something we all need to hear and be reminded of on a regular basis.
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. || Galatians 5.1
When we come to know Jesus, when He saves our souls and gives us new life, we are forever changed by His grace! But we are still confronted and bombarded with sin. That desire to fall back into sinful habits and a sinful lifestyle, however, no longer control us. Read the verse again…it is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Let’s walk in the power of the Spirit and ask God for the strength to resist temptation and live for His glory alone.
And then we must remember that not only are we no longer controlled by the power of sin, but we are also NEW creations!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. || 2 Corinthians 5:17
What wonderful news!! We all come from a fallen past, a broken past that sometimes haunts us. But let’s grab hold of Paul’s words to the Corinthians and realize who we are in Christ. We are new creations, free from the power of sin.
