In this week’s program on your Identity in Christ, we teach on Galatians chapter 5, verse 1 (ESV):
— For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
How precious was, and is the blood of Christ, the perfect sacrifice for us, the undeserving human race. The finished works of our Lord include our release from being slaves to sin, sickness and disease and all works of the enemy (devil). How important is it now, then, to realize this Truth, and to believe and act free, and not to continue to be enslaved to the ways of our old father, the devil Satan.
For the believer is now truly born-again, dead to its old self. All things now being new. (2 Cor 5:17). The believer is now blessed from on high with a new spirit, in which God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit indwell. That new spirit which is us, being set free from generational curses if any existed before the old baptism unto death with Jesus. (Romans 6:4). Now all that’s left to do is believe. Believing by being transformed… by renewing the mind… which means reading what God says about us and everything, and…. believing.
This program covers the following Scriptures from the English Standard Version (ESV): Galatians 5:1; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:4.
