God’s Purpose in Revealing the Truth

To Sanctify Man and Set Him Free (Jn 17:17)

Paul spoke of his diligence and blamelessness in observing the law before he received the grace of salvation. Yet his conscience always pricked him: “For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. … I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.” This was because he was “carnal, sold under sin” (Rom 7:14–19). But he thanked God that through Jesus Christ our Lord he was able to escape from sin, for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus had made him free from the law of sin and death (Rom 8:2).

Those who commit sin are slaves to sin. The whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one; all who live in the world sin and are slaves to sin (1 Jn 5:19). But the Lord Jesus said to the Jews who believed in Him: “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (Jn 8:31–32).

We have been called by the Lord and live under His grace; sin shall no longer have dominion over us. As long as we set our minds on the things of the Spirit and act in obedience to the Spirit, presenting our bodies as instruments of righteousness to God, we will surely triumph over evil, lust and the world. Our lives will be transformed and renewed; we shall bear the fruit of the Spirit and gradually become sanctified (Rom 7:18–25, 6:11–14; Gal 5:22–23).
