Our Lord Jesus has given us freedom to come into the presence of God!
Freedom as Priests of God to offer sacrifices of praise, thanksgiving, and worship.
Freedom from fear of judgment or death.
Do not allow anyone to entangle you with a system of works, duties, or deed in order to obtain favor with God.
1. God will not accept us because we do anything! We are “accepted in the beloved.” (Ephesians 1:6)
2. You are not complete or incomplete by what you do! “We are complete in him.” (Colossians 2:10)
3. Our righteousness before God is neither depleted nor enhanced by our obedience to laws and duties. “By the obedience of one (Christ) shall many be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19)
4. We do love God’s law and there is not one commandment that we have liberty to ignore. The life we love and live is because we love God and one another.
