John 8:36 – If then the Son shall set you free, you are really free.
Part 1 ~ Will We Believe God’s Testimony?
It is absolutely vital we lay hold of the things God has said concerning His promises to us. God cannot lie; and if He said we are completely liberated when we are born of the Spirit, then we are! The miracle of salvation produces the life of God flowing out of our inner-being the moment we call upon the Name of the Lord Jesus (John 4:14; Proverbs 18:4).
These healing waters and expressions of God’s own life are remedy enough for whatever problem mankind may have. We become so liberated through our Savior Jesus Christ that the old man is gone; and the new man, which is the very life of Jesus, is formed within us (2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:4-6; Galatians 2:20).
When we are born of God, we are created in righteousness and true holiness, and become those who have a new heart and a new spirit and possess the divine nature (Ephesians 4:24; Ezekiel 36:26; 2 Peter 1:3-4). Everything about our lives is new and beautiful. The old is gone having been destroyed by the miracle of salvation. Yet, at the end of the day, we must decide who we will believe – the old or the new.
