• True freedom comes in surrender to Jesus
• True freedom is doing what God wants. Freedom isn’t doing what I want...that leads to bondage.
• True freedom is only found in loving Jesus.
You have to replace your love for sin with a greater love. If you want to overcome sin…you must hate it like God hates it.
When you love something, you hate what opposes/destroys it. We love our kids...so anything that threatens my kids is in my crosshairs. So, the way you develop hate for sin is to develop a love for Jesus.
The only way to be set free from this slavery is if the Son sets us free. Unless something intervenes, our slavery to sin will lead to hell. Hell is a eternal slavery.
• True freedom comes from knowing Christ through genuine faith and abiding in His word.
