Forgiveness AND Freedom!

Passage: Romans 8:2

Speaker: Steven Cooper

Series: New Life in the New Year

Category: Sermon

Message Summary:  Life continually reminds us that it will be uncertain and unpredictable. But God’s promises bring order in the midst of the chaos. God is building a new world within the world we live in. This new world is characterized by freedom from the guilt AND power of sin. Because of Jesus, we are given the Holy Spirit, the personal presence of God, who makes us come alive in new ways that feel like freedom.


Discussion Questions:

  1. How do God’s promises stabilize us and give us confidence in the midst of uncertainty in our lives?
  2. What is the law of the Spirit of life? What does this phrase mean?
  3. How does the law of the Spirit of life set us free from the law of sin and death?
  4. In what ways have you experienced this freedom in your own life?



Romans 8:1-2

1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  

2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
