He Breaks the Power of Cancelled Sin

“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For in Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of Life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8: 1-2)

“He breaks the power of cancelled sin, He sets the prisoner free: His blood can make the foulest clean: His blood availed for me.” The words to the fourth verse of Charles Wesley’s song “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing” ring true for us even today. The problem is, we don’t believe it. We say we do, though. We open our hearts to the living God by accepting His son Jesus as our Lord and the One who saved us.

We agree that He has forgiven us of our sin and made us righteous. We agree that we cannot earn our way into heaven through good works. We agree that we need Jesus’ sacrifice to get us into heaven. So what don’t we believe? We don’t believe that Jesus “breaks the power of cancelled sin.” Our sin has been cancelled by the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross when He said “it is finished.” The debt was paid.

If the sin has been cancelled, then how do we let it still have power over our lives? We let sin have power when we remember it and shamefully allow it to affect how we think about serving God (i.e., “God cannot use me after doing (insert your sin here)). We let sin have power when, after confessing and being forgiven of it, we go back to some of the same habits and thoughts we had before. We allow those habitual behaviors to crop up again when we stop our study of the Word, our prayer life, and our worship.

We've stop believing “the Spirit of Life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”

Question: Are you living this kind of life?

Challenge: Get back into God’s Word and trust Him. “He breaks the power of cancelled sin and sets the prisoner free.”

Prayer: Father, thank you for Your freedom! Help me to live in that freedom. Amen.
