Now We Are Free

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).

We have been using the words of the rich old hymn, “Free From the Law,” to aid our study, basking in the mighty doctrine it unveils, as contained in its title. We have seen the higher calling and standing of the Christian through the work of the cross, no longer under the law’s bondage. Verse two reveals the means by which we have “become dead to the law by the body of Christ” (Romans 7:4), and free from its condemning penalty.

Now we are free—there’s no condemnation, Jesus provides a perfect salvation; “Come unto Me,” O hear His sweet call, Come, and He saves us once for all.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus . . . For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:1,2). Jesus said, “He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24).

A sense of salvation’s completeness and perfection can be gleaned from the discussion of the absolute sufficiency of Christ’s atoning sacrifice throughout the Book of Hebrews. “Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25). Nothing was left undone that needed to be done to offer salvation to each one of us. “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation” (Hebrews 2:3).

And now the invitation rings out, “Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will let him take of the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17). JDM
