FREEDOM IN JESUS CHRIST

Heb 3:1                  All of you , who were called by God,    THINK ABOUT JESUS

Heb 3:6  Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house.  And we are his house,  if we hold on to our courage and hope of which we boast.

Eph 3:12    In Christ we can come before God with freedom and without fear.  We can do this through faith in Christ.  

Remember all the times Jesus asked:  “Why are you afraid”  and  “Do you still not understand”

    I’m sure  Jesus is still asking many who confess that He is Lord, those same questions  (2 Peter 3:18)

Romans 3:22-24  God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ..They need to be made free from sin through Jesus Christ.

1 Cor 1:30 (nlt)  Christ made us right with God;   he made us pure and holy,  and he freed us from sin.

1 Peter 2:16-17  Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. Live as servants of God.

Gal 5:13-15  …God called you to be free, but do not use your freedom as an excuse. The whole law is made complete in this:     Love your neighbor as you love yourself. 

Remember:   Romans 14:1 Accept into your group someone who is weak in faith...do not argue…

1 Thes 5:14-15  … Encourage the people who are afraid.  Help those who are weak.  Be patient with everyone. ….

Heb 3:13  ...encourage each other every day..  Help each other so none of you will become hardened because sin has tricked you

Romans 5:21 Sin once used death to rule us, but God gave people more of his grace so that grace could rule by making people right with him. … this brings life forever through Jesus Christ…

1 John 4:17-19  Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear….

2 Tim 1:7-14  “God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power, love and self-control”   13  Follow the pattern of true teachings that you heard from me in faith and love, which are in Christ Jesus.

1 Cor 2:12 “We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God…..(11-16)    

Romans 8:15-19 “The Spirit we received ….makes us children of God.    The Spirit himself joins with our spirits to say we are God’s children.
