The scene from Braveheart is classic. Instead of begging for mercy, he cries freedom, and dies. Through that sacrifice, the scots go on to fight and win their freedom. Now for us, It is the Son of God whose death wins our freedom, not just from political tyranny, but something far worse - from the curse of the law. From God’s condemnation of you.
And you have no more battles to fight, to be
justified before God. Skirmishes with
sin remain of course, but by faith in Christ, you are free from condemnation forever. Right now. Rejoice!
Assurance of pardon
