He didn’t come just to make the blind see. He came to make the dead live. You cannot deny God’s sovereignty over all things and still have the Gospel. The very essence of the Gospel proves it.
We need to be set free. Sin convinces us that we don’t. You will always be a slave to something, but this sin, this slavery was not what you were created for. You are so much more than what you have chosen to become. But the mindset of the flesh is hostile to God.
We were slaves shackled to our sin. But God did not leave us there. Jesus was sent to proclaim release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and freedom to the oppressed. We have to come to terms with the fact that we have a need for God before we can embrace His truth.
It is not just slave to free; it’s slave to son. God doesn’t just break the chains, He brings us in as heirs to the Kingdom of God. A slave, once he is free, does not keep going on as a slave. Stop going back to your sin like it’s going to satisfy this time. We have been set free from sin and can now dwell with Christ. We can now choose to obey Him. We are dead to sin and alive in God.
Live in this truth.
