Empowered and Free 8

"5.     Jesus came to save you, give you eternal life and set you free.
Jesus saves you
Romans 10:9-13
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised Him form the dead, thou shalt be saved.
V10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
V11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.
V12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
V13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
 Jesus gives to you eternal life.
John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

Jesus sets you free.
John 8:32 + 36
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
V36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

Just think about these things that Jesus did for you and what this freedom really means.

Sometimes you think of being free in Christ as being free from this or that and it does. 

You are set free from sin
You are set free from the penalty of sin
You are free from the power of sin over your life
You are free from satan’s stronghold
you are free from your past sins
You are free from the law of sin and death

But what Jesus did was more than just set you free from, Jesus set you free to:
You are free to come to the throne of God, boldly
You are free to ask God for anything
You are free to be yourself
You are free to worship God directly, without a mediator
You are free to worship in the spirit, in fact required

you are free from and free to, so that you can be empowered by God for the great things He has before you. 

Think about what Jesus has done for you.  Can you imagine that there is any chance that Jesus:
1.     Would come directly to His people.
2.     receive anyone who will answer His call. 
3.     Fit you to receive all the gifts of the Spirit.
4.     Bless you with everything you need.
5.     Save you, give you eternal life, and set you free
Thinking that you wouldn’t be recognized as children of the living God?

As children of the living God, Jesus wants you to be easily recognized.

Empowered and free is what you are. 

Now you need to go out into the world and let the Shekinah glory of God, that is in you be revealed to others. 

Jesus did what He did for you so that there could be no doubt in anyone’s mind that you are a child of the living God."
