Conhecendo a Liberdade

Sabendo que não foi com coisas corruptíveis, como prata ou ouro, que fostes resgatados da vossa vã maneira de viver, que por tradição recebestes dos vossos pais, mas com precioso sangue, como de um cordeiro sem defeito e sem mancha, o sangue de Cristo. (1Pedro 1:18-19)

Quando Deus viu o precioso sangue de Jesus, sua ira sobre o pecado do homem foi aplacada, nosso débito foi pago e nossa vida se tornou segura. Quando nós recebemos Jesus como nosso Senhor e Salvador, nos tornamos livres para usufruir das bênçãos do relacionamento com Ele. De fato, o pagamento pelo nosso débito era exatamente aquilo que Jesus tinha em mente quando estava no Calvário. Ele disse: Está consumado (Tetelestai). A tradução poderia ter sido: pago completamente. Jesus pagou completamente o nosso débito e Deus se sentiu satisfeito.

Nós não somos mais prisioneiros aguardando uma sentença, mas filhos à espera de bênçãos inefáveis.
Essa nova posição nos dá autoridade para termos uma nova condição de vida. Antes do relacionamento com Jesus, éramos escravos do pecado. Todas as tentações que vinham sobre nós nos levava à queda. Não havia opção, a não ser ceder ao pecado. Após a salvação, temos uma nova posição e, como consequência, uma nova condição: podemos dizer não ao pecado.

Quem não conhece essa condição continua escravo do pecado, mas quando, pela fé entendemos nossa nova condição, podemos andar confiantemente no Espírito e vencer as tentações.

A proclamação de emancipação nunca é eficiente, se as pessoas que são objeto desse privilégio não tomam conhecimento do mesmo. É condição ao escravo, portanto, que ele conheça todas as cláusulas desse novo contrato. Para o dono do escravo, contudo, seria bem melhor que os escravos livres nunca tomassem conhecimento de sua condição. Desta forma, ele poderia continuar a controlá-los, ainda que ilegalmente.

Se você não conhece Efésios 1:7, que diz que você tem completa liberdade em Cristo, ainda que seja salvo, viverá como escravo de Satanás. Você será como um pássaro que permanece na gaiola, mesmo que a porta da mesma esteja aberta pelo poder tremendo do Deus Todo Poderoso.

João escreve:

Filhinhos, eu vos escrevo estas coisas para que não pequeis. Mas, se alguém pecar, temos um advogado diante do Pai, Jesus Cristo Justo. (1João 2:1)

Se você ainda não se entregou a Cristo, saiba que ao entregar a sua vida a Ele, conhecerá a liberdade que tanto almeja. Se, contudo, você já tem um relacionamento com Ele, precisa tomar posição e andar como quem é controlado pelo Espírito, alguém que tem autoridade sobre o pecado, pois já foi liberto dessa escravidão.
