Freedom via Grace through the Cross
Now the decisive conclusion is this: in Christ, every bit of condemning evidence against us is canceled. (In Christ revelation is key to God’s dealing with man) …this leaves me with no further obligation to the law of sin and death. (The) Spirit has supersemded the sin enslaved senses as the principle law of our lives.
Loose paraphrase of Romans 8:1-2 parsed from The Mirror Translation.
Sin trapped man into legalism, Christs death on the cross brought forth grace. Not necessarily that we are free from sin but that we are free to be in Christ. We are no longer to be burdened by the things of this world, sin and death have no grounds to condemn or bring about fear.
I can walk in freedom, I am no longer chained to this world but emancipated. God paid my spiritual mortgage 2000 years ago. This grace gift gives freedom from sin and death.
