The Gospel has so many wonderful facets, doesn’t it? Lately, I’ve been fascinated with the truth that Christ’s death emancipates us from sin so completely that we can even stand against our own temptations! Think about it, dear sisters: We no longer have to sin!
Of course, we don’t always appropriate that grace, and the Lord generously forgives us each time. Nevertheless, we can rejoice that our growth in Him enables us to sin less and less frequently because of His grace.
As we know, freedom from sin is only one aspect of the Gospel. Today’s hymn touches on several equally wonderful points. And all these blessings come through Christ alone.
