We are redeemed, released and rescued by the sacrifice of Jesus!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Romans 6:1 Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? 2 Of course not!
Read - Romans 6-8:12
Since we have been redeemed we are empowered to live a life of holiness rather than falling back into sin. Since we were released from sin’s bondage, we can experience freedom in Christ and His grace. As people that have been rescued, we can live with thanksgiving and serve God out of faithfulness rather than simply duty.
Lord, I will walk with the Spirit as my Master today.
The trouble for the Mended follower of Christ is our flesh. Although Christ has set us free from the curse of sin we still carry around a body of flesh and that body tends to drift towards its sinful memories rather than towards the freedom from sin that our Spirit and Soul experience in Christ. Even with this hard truth, Romans 8:1 gives us joy in that ‘There is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ’.
