Last Sunday we continued to look at Romans
“In the old order we were married to the law and controlled by the flesh, and we bore fruit for death, whereas as members of the new order we are married to the risen Christ and liberated from the law, and we bear fruit for God. We need then to keep a watch on ourselves and others, lest we should ever slip back from the new order into the old, from a person to a system, from freedom to slavery, form the indwelling Spirit to an external code, from Christ to the law. God’s purpose is that we should be New Testament Christians who, having died and risen with Christ, are living in the freedom of the indwelling Spirit” – John Stott

Philemon: What does the Bible say about slavery?
Real freedom is not just from physical slavery – but also from economic, emotional, psychological and spiritual. That is of course why Jesus came – to set the prisoners free. It is freedom from sin and all it’s consequences. And it begins within.
