“Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. A slave does not remain in the household forever, but a son does remain forever. Therefore, if the Son sets you free, you really will be free.” John 8:34-36
This passage differentiates between a slave and a son. And the difference is a slave sins; while a son pursues His Father’s business (pursues Holiness).
So if Jesus marked you with His Spirit of sonship, then you have the freedom to say a no to everything that isn’t of Him. Before the Holy Spirit was given to us; we had no choice but to comply and succumb to our fallen nature.
But now, because His Spirit has made His Home in us; we have the authority to say a NO to all that we used to say a YES to; and vice-verse.
There is so much freedom in Christ and if we aren’t experiencing that freedom daily; there is part of us that haven’t embraced the fullness of Christ.
The freedom to be His Child doesn’t take effort, when you understand, believe and are convinced that You Have a GOOD Father.
