This past week, my husband preached about freedom in Christ. John 8:36 says, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
An older woman came up to him after his sermon and said for the first time in her life, she has finally been set free from her past sins.
Why do we hang on to past sins? I did this for years until I finally realized, I am not defined by my past sins. And guess what? Neither are you!
If the son has set us free then we are free and we need to live victoriously. “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1 (NIV)
We are all broken and wounded. That’s why we need a Savior. We are guilty but because of His sacrifice we are pardoned!
This song is a newer version of Just As I Am and I love the chorus.
I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I’m welcomed with open arms
Praise God, just as I am
