Rejoice with me brothers and sisters, after a long hard journey dragging his own righteousness behind him, another precious soul is leaving it behind at the cross.
Question 5. What does it mean to you personally, as you see that Jesus Christ has undone all the effects of sin for you? Please share your thoughts here:
Jesus is reversing the curse on me. He has really been making me believe these last few lessons. It's amazing, how entirely different I've been seeing things. From being in bondage to sin for so long and losing hope and wanting to die, to being given hope of a perfect life in Heaven.
I try to work hard in the things that matter. That was what I was trying to do in regards to my relationship with Jesus. I simply could not accept that His death was completely sufficient, I thought I still had to keep the law. But I don't! Jesus kept the law and took all of my sin off of me, it can no longer be found on my being. Instead He gave me His righteousness and took my sins down with Him, but He left them in the tomb when He rose. I simply must believe and keep believing.
Oh, [brother], the tears are flowing here mate, they really are - Hallelujah Jesus, your perfect ministry to each of us is always the same, bringing light and joy and salvation all wrapped up in one.
Yes, we are set free of the law, not that we then want to, or even think about sliding back into sin, no, it is like the chains that held us back from the throne of God have been broken and at last, we can run headlong into Jesus' arms.
No more condemnation - hallelujah
No more weight of sin - hallelujah
Freedom to worship and love our Saviour - hallelujah
