AN INSTRUMENT OF ETERNAL LIBERTY

I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2j (NKJV)

The cross of Calvary—where Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died—is the extraordinary instrument of freedom where our eternal liberty was secured.

You see, our freedom cannot be purchased with a social revolution or a majority vote. The source of our oppression is spiritual, not political, economic, or cultural. We are born sinners, separated from the life and liberty of our Creator, God. We are imprisoned by the darkness of sin, chained by its selfish grip and under the influence of the god of this world, Satan.

Our only hope is to be rescued by the One who alone has the power and right to liberate us from sin’s reign and rule. That is exactly what Christ did at the cross. He bore the penalty of sin—death—making it possible for us to be reconciled to the Author of spiritual liberty, Jehovah God.

At the cross, Jesus released you from the curse of eternal death. When you receive Christ, you gain the incredible inheritance of eternal life. You still die physically, but your spirit is made alive by God. And you will be with Him forever! The Cross shattered the bonds of sin, making spiritual freedom possible for all who believe in Jesus Christ.
