We Have Been Freed!

“For he who has died has been freed from sin.”

Romans 6:7

Ponder This

Dr. Robert G. Lee went to the Holy Land for the first time and he came to the place called Calvary. The guide was giving a lecture and he asked, “How many of you have ever been here before?” Now remember, it was Dr. Lee’s first trip to the Holy Land, Yet, Dr. Lee lifted his hand. And the guide asked, “When were you here?” Dr. Lee replied, “Two thousand years ago. When Jesus died for me, I died with Him.” That’s the reason the Apostle Paul said in Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Sin has been our taskmaster and our dictator but because of the death of Christ in our place, we have been set free.
