“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”
John 8:36 NIV
Jesus in His first sermon, said, “I came to bring good news.” He said, “I’ve come to set people free.” He said, “I am the truth John 14:6), you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” In John 8:36, He said, “If the Son will set you free, you will be free indeed.” Truly, all who are in Christ Jesus are free! But many are still enslaved. They knew the truth but how come they are still enslaved to sin? How come? The mystery is unlocked by this verse…. 2 Corinthians 3: 17 “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
In Galatians 5:1, Paul tells us that, “Freedom is what we have. Christ has set us free.” Jesus promises real and lasting freedom and with 2Corinthians 3:17’s indwelling Holy Spirit we are ultimately free.
