Our Freedom From Sin Section B – The Blood and The Cross.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. (Romans 1:4)
In the first section we saw that our salvation and sanctification are from the gift of Christ and all gifts of Christ are communicated to us and given to us by the Spirit of Christ – The Holy Spirit.
IT IS ALL ABOUT THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN HEART OF MANKIND BASED ON THE FINISHED WORK OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS AT CALVARY & ITS BENEFITS FOR MANKIND
Part of the outworking of our regeneration by God through the acts of the Holy Spirit is our salvation and sanctification.
Regeneration means to be renewed, reformed, or reconstituted; to have a spiritual rebirth (be spiritually reborn) “Born Again”; to cause to be completely reformed or improved and to grow anew (a part to replace one hurt or lost).
Two Major Aspects of Our Redemption
Firstly, the forgiveness of our sins
The aspect of the work of our Lord Jesus which is represented by ‘the Blood’ shed for our justification through “the remission of sins”.
And secondly our deliverance from Sin
The aspect of His work represented by ‘the Cross’: That is to say, by our union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. We have been “crucified” with Christ.
THE BLOOD DEALS WITH WHAT WE HAVE DONE AS IT DISPOSES OF OUR SINS while THE CROSS DEALS WITH WHAT WE ARE, AS IT STRIKES AT THE ROOT OF OUR CAPACITY FOR SIN
Please watch the video and pray through the the designated bits.
May the grace of God continue to uphold us all – Amen
