Lesson 5 - Freedom from Sin

Apr 7, 2024    Russ Robins, Justin Spargo, Dru McLaughin

Before God adopted you, you were dead in your sins and trespasses and separated from him. Your sins had piled up before him, and there was no way you could repay the debt you owed – except by eternal death. When you chose to call upon his name by responding to the gospel invitation, God made you alive with him and forgave (you) all (your) trespasses. At the moment of your baptism, the debt you owed was canceled. You are no longer obligated to pay it – because Jesus took your debt of sin away, nailing it to the cross. Oh, how precious is our adoption! Without Him, we would be hopelessly lost, under sin, and eternally doomed.
