John 8:31-36; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:14-19; Galatians 4:3-11

Main Points

  • Scripture is concerned more about that you’ve sinnedthan the content of your sin.
  • We can either be slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness. There is no in-between.
  • When we become slaves to righteousness by accepting Jesus’ sacrifice, He also “adopts” us and we are made sons and daughters of God.
  • In our Journey with God, each time a sin is revealed in our life, we must decide whether to hold onto that sin or let go of it and follow Jesus. Damage and pain comes when people try to choose both.
  • If I don’t let go of my sin, I project it onto my Christian life. The content of my “sin” might be more holy or righteous, but I am not.
  • Pray and ask God to reveal the sins you need to let go of.

Focus Questions

  1. What areas of my life am I still holding on to?
  2. Have I brought any sins into my new life in Christ?
  3. What do I need to do to let go of those sins?
