Jun 04, 2020 Season 3 Episode 32

How can I escape the penalty of sin? How can I overcome the power of sin? Two questions that often trouble us, don’t they? We not only want to be freed from the punishment of sin but from the power of sin in our lives.

John 1:29-34 points to Jesus as the answer to both of these problems.

JESUS FREES FROM THE PENALTY OF SIN (29)

  •  Jesus came to this sinful world
  • Jesus took away the sin of the world

Jesus frees from sin's penalty by becoming the sacrifice for sin and taking the penalty of sin upon himself.

But we want and need more, don't we? We not only want free from sin's penalty, but from sin's power. Can Jesus do that?

JESUS FREES FROM THE POWER OF SIN (30-33)

  • Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit (32)
  • Jesus fills us with the Holy Spirit (33)

Jesus frees from sin's power by filling his people with his powerful Spirit, his HOLY spirit.

Follow John’s finger and John’s words and behold Jesus, look to Jesus to free you from the penalty of sin and the power of sin.
