Art of Living #30

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #30 : "34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."" (John 8:34-36).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Christianity is not just one of the religion in the world that gives humans a sense of spiritual satisfaction, but it is the unique one and only God ordained belief system that leads a man to God and adopts him in to the family of God. According to Jesus, "whoever commits sin is a slave of sin." Do all religious people in the world commit sin and that too atleast once in their life? Yes even daily, because we are born sinners. That means Jesus is saying, people of all religions in the world are sinners. So religion is not a answer to man's spiritual problems.

A sinner cannot ever find the true God who calls Himself as the "Holy One of Israel" (Isa 30:15). This is why God Himself had the heavenly blueprint to reach all men through His Son Jesus and executed it before two thousand years and sealed a new agreement with humanity. In the agreement God the Father signed with Jesus, he declared that all who accept Jesus as His only Begotten Son will inherit the legal right to be a heir of all His wealth. So Jesus the Christ has become the only God ordained dispenser of adoptive rights of God to all humanity who believe in Him. Jesus takes the sin problem of those who believe in Him and sets them free from it forever to become legally adopted as God's own adopted child. Because Jesus being sinlessly perfect died once and for all time a death which God accepted as the antidote and substitute for his adopted children's on earth, He sees each one of us who believe in Jesus as righeous and perfect as Jesus is from heaven now.

Therefore Jesus said, if the Son [i.e. pointing to Himself] makes you free from sin problem, you can continue to be a child of God for eternity ahead. O what a priviledge!!! A slave is a religious person who works with all his might to get saved and enter heaven. He wants to earn salvation through his own hard work. Inspite of striving to enter heaven, they will not be able to abide with this Holy God in heaven because he demands a hundred percentage perfect righteousness (James 2:10). WHEN JESUS FORGIVES YOU, HE FORGIVES YOUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE SINS AND MAKES YOU A CHILD OF GOD FOR ETERNITY AHEAD!!!! As our body is considered as a house in which our spirit-man legally lives on this earth, as God's child even though we physically die once and after that at the time of the rapture of the Church we will all rise up in a glorious body which has no death for eternity ahead. We will surely abide once again in this God's house of our body forever. Praise the Lord!
