The death of the old man (who you used to be) was the begging of your freedom in Christ.
Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority![a] 3 Your crucifixion[b] with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ.
Last week I shared that the 4 levels of freedom.
The 1st is to realize and believe that you are free.
The 2nd is to understand that you are free from the power of something not necessarily the cycle/habit/fight of something.
The 3rd phase is learning how to walk in that freedom so you can break free from the cycle or habit that is lingering with you.
And the final 4th phase is total and complete victory in an area that once held you back or you struggled with.
What I see so clear in the scriptures is this truth – God is not content with you just being free or an overcomer. He wants to mold you into being MORE THAN A CONQUEROR.
Rom. 8.37 (NKJV) Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
***What does it mean to be more than a conqueror? It means NO MORE STRUGGLE in that area!!!
