Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” John 8:34-36 NLT
I don’t want to be a slave to sin… plain and simple. But I am! I have things in my life that are hard to shake free of, I bet you do too. Just today, Holy Spirit pointed out another one. I hate that, I don’t want sin in my life, but there it is.
So I must resurrender anew, offering up confession and asking for deliverance from this sin. It’s not always that simple to be free from it, but Jesus said that if the Son sets me free, I am truly free.
I want Jesus to bring new wine out of me, therefore I must get back on the alter of confession and surrender to be truly free. It’s a mind & heart thing.
Wine is made by crushing and pressing the grape to extract the juice. So I am hanging on for some intense squeezing as I turn away from sin and toward Jesus.
More than sin, I want Jesus!
