Free Life: a life where God is in control of your life
John 8:31-36 NLT
Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my
disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the
truth, and the truth will SET YOU FREE.” “But we are descendants of
Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone. What
do you mean, ‘You will be set free’?” Jesus replied, “I tell you the
truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. A slave is not a permanent
member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. So if the
Son sets you free, you are truly free.”
3 Categories of People When It Comes to Sin:

  1. Blinded to sin
  2. Struggling with sin
  3. Freedom from sin
    The Big Question: “How do I really get free from sin controlling my
    life?”
    Answer: Give yourself completely to God!
    Romans 6:12-14 NLT
    Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.
    Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve
    sin. Instead, GIVE YOURSELVES COMPLETELY TO GOD, for you
    were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an
    instrument to do what is right for the glory of God. Sin is no longer
    YOUR MASTER, for you no longer live under the requirements of the
    law. Instead, you live under the FREEDOM of God’s GRACE.
    Grace: God doing for us what we couldn’t do for ourselves
    2 Corinthians 5:15 MSG
    He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be
    included in his life, a RESURRECTION LIFE, A FAR BETTER LIFE
    THAN PEOPLE EVER LIVED ON THEIR OWN.
    John 3:3-8 NLT
    Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you
    cannot see the Kingdom of God.” “What do you mean?” exclaimed
    Nicodemus. “How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb
    and be born again?” Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter
    the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.
    Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth
    to spiritual life. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born
    again.’ The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the
    wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you
    can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”
    John 3:16-21 NLT
    “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son,
    so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal
    life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to
    save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone
    who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has
    already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And
    the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world,
    but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions
    were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for
    fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to
    the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.”
