1 John 3:8 Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.
What are the works of the devil?
Slavery to sin
Making us disobey the commandments of God is the work of the devil. The devil needs us to agree with his thoughts and plans in order to produce sin in us but If we remember that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil meaning he came to give us a new heart that is obedient to God and not to the devil so that we can live a new life exactly like the life of the Lord Jesus on the earth (Rom 6:4)
When we sin we become slaves of sin and lose our freedom and God, our heavenly father was sad that we became slaves to sin and Satan so he sent us good news.
Freedom through Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is our good news he came to save us by destroying the works of the devil.Jesus Christ came to give us freedom from the devil’s power. Jesus Christ did not come to just remove our past sins but he can save us everyday from the power of sin. He can save us by the power of the Holy Spirit and help us to keep God’s commandments and therefore have the freedom to experience Peace and Joy
The Lord Jesus can save us from the power of sin EVERYDAY! This is a glorious reason to celebrate Christmas.
May God bless you and free you from a guilty conscience, fear of wrath, pleasure of sin into holiness, love, peace and Joy. May you follow Jesus everyday and be obedient to God and enjoy freedom from sin.
