Jesus said, "I tell you most solemnly that anyone who chooses a life of sin is trapped in a dead-end life and is, in fact, a slave. A slave is a transient, who can't come and go at will. The Son, though, has an established position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. -John 8:34-36
As un-believers we were all the slaves of sin...but Thank God there is Freedom through Jesus Christ! Jesus said who ever He sets Free is Free Indeed. That word indeed...most of us miss the meaning of it in - deed. When Christ sets us free we are free in what we do free in our actions...the old way of thinking and the enemy try to convince us that we are still the same messed up people but we aren't! Religion will even have you singing spiritual sounding songs that declare how wretched you are...but that is not the way Christ sees it if He sets you free then you are free buddy!!!
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. -2 Corinthians 5:17
You are no Longer a slAve to sin and death...declare it and then act like ya know it! Ya Heard!
