True Freedom Is ?


A Free People

Romans 6:13-18

Romans 6:18 says, "Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness."

One thing that we should cherish is our freedom. If we were to count our many blessings, right at the top of the list would be something we call freedom. It could be defined as "exemption from external control, interference, or regulation." It also can mean, "the right to enjoy all the special rights and privileges of citizenship." Spiritually speaking, God’s redeemed people are free or better yet "free indeed." Let's look at our spiritual freedom. But first allow me to, by the grace of God, open these verses.

I. The Agent Of Our Freedom- (Jn. 8:32-36)

    1. It is God’s Word that cuts us loose from the

        old life and brings us into a new one.

    2. Think about this, Truth, the word, actually worked on us

        before we were saved

        A. It made us aware of our sinful condition.

        B. It brought about conviction or the sense of sin in us.

   3. Aren’t you glad someone preached it to you?

        A. Now we understand the full meaning of

            (I Corinthians 1:21)

II. The Acknowledgment Of Our Freedom (Rom.10:9-10)

    1. Why do we need to acknowledge our freedom?

         A. To grasp, to realize, and to really know we are truely

              saved, truely free. (1 John 5:17)

    2. If we realize, understand, and know that we are truely free

        A. We have no business allowing sin to have power over us

        B. We have no business allowing Satan to rule over us.

            1. Oh, hear (1John 4:4)

        C. We have the power to and  can live a more effective

             Christian life.

III. The Aspects Of Our Freedom- (free from what?)

    1. From the penalty of sin (Rom.6:23).          

       A. This verse tells us that the wages of sin is death or eternal

            separation from Holy God forever and ever.

       B. Being born again sets you free from this penalty

    2. From the power of sin (Rom. 6:14).

       A. Salvation brings an implanted "new nature"

           1. This new nature overcomes that old Adamic nature we

                took on at birth.

           2. We no longer have to submit to sin and the power of


    3. From the very presence of sin.

       A. We will be free to enjoy the perfect world called heaven

            one day.

       B. We are not trying to be justified by the deeds of the law.

       C. We are justified through personal faith and trust in the

            Lord Jesus Christ.

IV. The Acclamation Of Our Freedom (Matthew 28:16-20)

    1. If we have been set free spiritually

       A. It is our obligation to tell others what has happened to us.

    2. There are so many folks today bound by sin and in the

         clutches of evil people

        A. That being the case, we must proclaim what Christ has

            done for us in salvation.

    3. Jesus has given us the power to be witnesses. (Acts 1:8)

    4. The sinner does not have to stay bound

        A. Christ has promised him freedom if he will come by the

             way of the cross.

    4. Enjoy your freedom!


    Everybody longs for freedom. But for many people its pursuitleads to bondage. The greatly loved Bible teacher Henrietta Mears knew the secret of true freedom, and she wanted her students to know it too. With young people in mind, she said, "A bird is free in the air. Place a bird in the water and he has lost his liberty. A fish is free in the water, but leave him on the sand and he perishes. He is out of his realm. So, young people, the Christian is free when he does the will of God and is obedient to God's command. This is as natural a realm for God's child as the water is for the fish, or the air for the bird."

Are You Really Free? Well you can be in Jesus Christ!
