Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:3
2 Timothy 1:3 says, “I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day,…” Here we see another declaration of Paul who had accepted his Sonship gifts and declared it. Paul’s bold statements should build a pathway for us of our own potential freedom in Christ. This freedom has already been purchased through His Blood! “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” Saints, why would we ever let the enemy take us back into bondage when Christ has said, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Let us move–out of bondage with an awareness of the reality that the past record of wrongdoings is a nonexistent thing. Let’s choose to walk in the quality of freedom that Paul knew and walk our path with the same confidence. Let’s continually say, ‘I am a son and daughter of the Most High God and He has declared me free. I’ve been set free from the prison of sin. I can rule over it and I can do anything God asks me to do!’ We truly are a people delivered, set free and ready to serve the King of kings! When Jesus arose from the dead, the Father declared Him Savior and Judge. Some may ask what if I mess up and sin? Does that disqualify me? Certainly not! In that event we must, though, do as King David did. We must quickly turn, fully repent and arise and position ourselves again in Him. God will never turn away the truly repentant!
