1. Meditate on your new bloodline of freedom. Allow Scripture to transform your perspective about who you are in Christ. Allow God’s word to empower you to fight the temptations that have plagued you.
“We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin.” Romans 6:6-7
“So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11
“And, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.” Romans 6:18
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1
2. Ask the Lord to show you a wound in your life that the enemy uses to lead you to sin. What past hurt are you trying to cover with sin? What need wasn’t met? What did someone wrongly tell you?
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3
3. Ask the Lord to bring you freedom and healing today. Ask Jesus how he feels about whatever happened to you. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to the path of continual healing and freedom that you might proclaim the excellencies of your Father to a greater measure.
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.” Titus 2:11-14
