The Son pt 2

(Freedom In Christ)

John 8:28–36

So Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own. But just as the Father taught me, I say these things. 29 The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do what pleases him.”

30 As he was saying these things, many believed in him.

31 Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you continue in my word, you really are my disciples. 32 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 “We are descendants of Abraham,” they answered him, “and we have never been enslaved to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34 Jesus responded, “Truly I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 A slave does not remain in the household forever, but a son does remain forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you really will be free.

Romans 6:16–23

Don’t you know that if you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of that one you obey—either of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But thank God that, although you used to be slaves of sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching to which you were handed over, 18 and having been set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.

19 I am using a human analogy because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you offered the parts of yourselves as slaves to impurity, and to greater and greater lawlessness, so now offer them as slaves to righteousness, which results in sanctification.

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness. 21 So what fruit was produced then from the things you are now ashamed of? The outcome of those things is death. 22 But now, since you have been set free from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification—and the outcome is eternal life! 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

First Thought: freedom is absolute .

John 8:33 “We are descendants of Abraham,” they answered him, “and we have never been enslaved to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will ’?”

1. True freedom is the ability to submit to the most master.

2. The Son offers types of freedom to His people.

  • Freedom things that bring you down.

John 8:34 Jesus responded, “Truly I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.

Romans 6:20-21 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness. 21 So what fruit was produced then from the things you are now ashamed of? The outcome of those things is death.

“Human nature is allergic to sin and evil. You do as you like and then you don’t like what you do; you have your way and then you don’t like your way. You express yourself, and you don’t like the self you express. All going away from Christ and his Kingdom has the feeling of estrangement upon it. All coming back to Christ and his kingdom has the feel of a homecoming upon it.” E. Stanley Jones

  • Freedom things that give you life.

Romans 6:22 But now, since you have been set free from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification—and the outcome is eternal life!

3. Freedom must be for.

  • to The Son, who fought for your freedom.

Romans 6:23 For is death, but is eternal life our Lord.

  • Fight for your .

Galatians 5:1

For freedom, Ch. Stand firm, then, and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery.

1 Timothy 6:11–12

But you, man of God, flee from these things, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of eternal life to which you were called and about which you have made a good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Final Thought: The freedom Jesus gives will last .
