Freedom Granted

20140421-091135.jpg

Romans 8:1

Zechariah 3:1-8

Joshua stood before The Lord awaiting the sentence. He had just been put on trial, prosecuted by Satan himself. As he anxiously awaits the verdict he knows it doesn’t look good. The arguments made against him were valid. He had made many mistakes in the past.

His head dropped as he realized that his future hung in the balance and that his end was coming up short.

Satan was silenced as the Judge spoke, “This man will not be tried based on who he once was.”

The sentence was given: freedom to move forward.

Joshua’s head jerked up as he stared at the Judge.

“Joshua has been forgiven of all his past sin. I no longer hold him accountable. He has been awarded a fresh start.”

Satan stood beside Joshua defeated.

Joshua stood before The Lord sinless, without fault.

And in this we see a picture of ourselves.

Christian, remember that when Satan stands beside you, buffeting you, that Jesus is standing before you, calling you to freedom. He no longer holds you accountable for past sin. Don’t allow the Naysayer deter you from living a life of victory.

Reach out to Jesus instead of falling into step with the enemy.

Blameless

Ephesians 1:4

“He tried to take advantage of me!!! I screamed and begged him not to and he finally ran away!!” Potiphar’s wife painted a vivid picture for her husband and his men of what had transpired between herself and Joseph, all the while holding Joseph’s garment.

Potiphar left in an outrage. He sentenced Joseph to jail time.

Joseph, an innocent man, would spend two years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.

Sometimes things we say or do are misinterpreted. Sometimes people just try to do us wrong in whatever way they can.

God knows this will happen. He also knows that it’s out of our control. So He tells us to be blameless and He’ll take care of the rest.

Take comfort that He is a just Judge, that He knows the truth and that He has the final word.
