Inspired by Rev 7:9-12

Freedom in Christ by Toni Babcock

We no longer habitually think “the law of sin is within my heart, I must obey it,” but “I delight to do thy will, O my God; yea Thy law is within my heart.”  (Psalm 140:8 KJV)

It’s been said Satan likes to keep us thinking like slaves. Which begs the question, how does a slave think?  Powerless, chained, and subject to the whip all come to mind - certainly not a picture of living in the grace and freedom of the gospel.  But there are two sides to the devil’s scheme. The opposite tact is to convince Christians anyone who preaches repentance from sin is preaching heresy.  That to risk preaching full surrender to Christ is to invite legalism and a false gospel. 

I believe Jesus came to cancel out both misconceptions.  He said, “…ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free, (John 8:33 KJV).   Free from what?  Free from the condemnation and power of indwelling sin.  We are not miserable slaves or licentious libertines.  Those who know and love the Lord are joyful servants of Christ.  We are not forced to cower under a legalistic whip, nor are we hopelessly chained to our miserable sins.  

We want Jesus to be Lord because a new principle has been born in our hearts through faith in the gospel of Christ.  Deliverance from sin may be a struggle, but through the Spirit it is always in process.
