Ask a lawyer: Freedom from sin, “de jure” or “de facto”?

Sin no longer has the legal right (de jure) to fence people in. The Cross made all humans legally free. Now we are all (whosoever will) invited to be led by the living Jesus across the fence of sin and to be trained and empowered by Him to live in genuine forgiveness from our past sins and to humbly walk in His presence and power to avoid present sins. This is the glorious liberty of the children of God that we are called to demonstrate to the world (de facto).

Make Jesus’ freedom de facto in your life. Try the lifestyle of a disciple for an hour: Deny yourself and your desires and try to be continually led and empowered by God’s Spirit.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
