We Have Been Freed From Sins

Fountains

To be “freed” from sins is an important concept for the believer. Before we accepted Jesus as savior we were “dead” in trespasses and sins. We had a sin nature thanks to Adam. But through Jesus we are no longer in bondage to sin.

To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood” (Revelation 1:5 NIV2011). We are free from sin. We have a new nature. We do not have a dual nature as some teach. We are whole, different spiritual beings freed from the nature to sin.

We are not under the dominion of sin. We are dead to sin. God remembers our sins no more. They are all past, present, and future. We are freed from sins by the blood of Jesus.

All that means is our new nature is not considering sin but righteousness. Is it possible to sin? Yes. Is sin still bad? Yes. Grace is greater than sin, by a long ways. No one has a sin license. God is not holding our sins against us. God has replaced the desire to sin with the desire to love. Love covers a multitude of sins.
