You know, you’ve always been free. Since the day you came to Jesus, you were free. Someone put rules on you. Someone gave you a bad message about the intentions of God. Someone lied, maybe not intentionally, but what they told you was a lie, that your freedom depends upon your performance. No! Your place in the covenant only depends on the goodness of God.
