A lesson God has been teaching me at the moment is : Rom 6:7 mixed with Rom 8:1 mixed with 1 Cor 10:23.
I am set free from sin. The chain is cut. Where I used to struggle I don’t have to struggle anymore – I used to be a slave with no way out. Now I have been released, God makes a way out.
There is no condemnation for me when I do sin / stumble. Although I feel my life may be cursed or a lightning bolt is coming for me, it’s not. God is just happy that I’m walking. When I fall, he tells me to get back up, try it again. I like to think that I won’t be able to speak or do ministry because I sinned this week. God laughs at that.
All things are lawful for me. There is freedom in whatever I do. God paid the price for that sin. But not all things are helpful or beneficial. Some of the “freedoms” lead me back to my old self. Christ died for that, why do I keep returning? That’s like a jewish man wanting to go back to a concentration camp. It’s because I forget. My mind is not always on God so I forget and the old self calls me back. It doesn’t disqualify me though. My sin can’t stop God.
