1 Timothy 2:15 – “Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
When Adam and Eve explicitly disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, they were cursed to a lifetime of toil, hardship and pain. The curse of sin still weights heavily on our world, and the consequences of sin are always more than what we can bear. But when Jesus came, He granted us freedom from sin, but only for those who want it.
Jesus died on the cross, broke the curse of sin and purchased our freedom from bondage by His own blood. But in order to be saved from the consequences of our sins, we must admit our mistakes, recognize the sacrifice of Jesus on our behalf and choose to turn away from sinful habits. We can be truly free only when we choose to break the chains that tie us down – secret sins, past regrets, and destructive habits.
Once you accept the gift of salvation, you also receive the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in your life. He will empower you and help you live a life that’s free from sin. It might be a daily struggle to overcome temptation but it’s not impossible. As you spend time with God and grow in faith, you will also grow in love and holiness. The power of the blood of Jesus has already set you free. All you need to do is stay in a constant relationship with God and seek to please Him in everything you do.
