David Alley commences this first message of a new series by pondering the question of what freedom really means to the Christian. Some people, says David, believe that once they are saved, they are under grace and therefore can act as they please. Others believe that they must observe every last one of the Old Testament laws in order to please God. Both positions, says David, are false and misleading. David goes on to illustrate from Scripture that the man who meditates (takes notice) on God’s law is blessed, while the one who goes his own way will perish. So what does it mean for the Christian to be free? David explains that we have all been found guilty of sins, and the debt we owe is more than any man could ever repay. However, by a miracle God’s own Son, Jesus, has paid our debt in full and we are free, but not free to do as we wish. Instead, we obey God out of love and gratitude for what He has done for us. God has released us from the consequences of our sin and has also give us power to overcome sin and live a life pleasing to Him.
