7-4-2017 Freedom To Obey Christ

There is no such thing as complete freedom. The American Revolution cast off abusive law for the freedom to establish our own law. Since sin is universal, Jesus’ Gospel invites all everywhere to cast off their shackles of sin for the freedom to serve under Jesus’ Law. “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness” (Romans 6:16-18 NKJV). No one can be freed from sins to do as they please. Liberty is not license or lawlessness!
