FACTUAL FREEDOM*By Miles Stanford

FACTUAL FREEDOM*
*By Miles Stanford*
*
"You were set free from the tyranny of Sin" (Rom. 6:18, Wey.)

There are two extremes that keep many of us in bondage. The one is
ignorance as to the possibility of freedom; the other, ignorance as to
the extent of freedom. Careful attendance to the facts of the Word will
solve both these crippling conditions.

"The New Testament teaches that the flesh is representatively dead in
virtue of the Cross, but it no where says it will become actually dead
by standing on that fact. What it does say is that, when reckoning the
fact true, self will lose its governing power over me. In Romans Six we
find that through the death of Christ, sin shall not have dominion over
you --- the idea is of bondage, ruling, governing, dominating. There is
no such view presented as the annihilation of the thing, the exclusion
of its presence, but the loss of its governing power. So you see if we
are looking for the actual death of the old nature in us, we are looking
for something that will never come to pass in this life." ---N.D.

"Our Lord has never promised that we shall be able to look within, and
say that self is gone. Whilst we really believe God's Word that we have
died with Christ unto sin, and count upon Him as the Living One to
manifest His life through us, others will see that self is inoperative,
whilst we are occupied with Christ."

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty where with Christ hath made us
free" (Gal. 5:1).

*THOUGHT FOR THIS WEEK*

*If we would see ourselves as God sees us ---*
*in all the perfections of the*
*Beloved in Whom*
*we have been engraced so fully*
*and loved so deeply -*
*we would reflect more of what*
*we have been made to be "in Christ".*
*----Keith McDonald*

***
*1Co 1:30 "..... of him are ye in Christ Jesus,*
*who of God is made unto us wisdom,*
*and righteousness, *
*and sanctification, *
*and redemption"* *
