Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.
The issue of sin and its place in the life of a believer need not be complicated at all. But unfortunately it is due to various dogma’s and interpretation. Paul makes it clear in this text that whatever the bondage and burden of sin is, could be or would be, the grace of God which is everything to do with the life of Christ, frees us from the penalty of sin which is spiritual death and physical in some cases. Here is my take, the love and provision of God for repentance and blessings are always flowing and available for all men. Everyone has access to the grace of God and if we can let go of the guilt and personal barriers, beliefs and limitations, Jesus will take us where we need to go. Jesus is always in the blessing, deliverance and giving business. His store runs 24/7. Don’t be a slave to sin but walk in Christ's steps.
Free me Oh Lord from the shackles and burden of my guilt. Bless and lead me to a place of understanding, confidence and repentance. In Jesus’ name I pray.
