Set Free – Sin Has no Claim Over Me


 

The World spoke

Its voice a lure

It drew me in

To sin for sure

 

I walked alone

My pain a shadow

Shackled by sin

A grave to follow

 

Forsaken and lost

You claimed me at great cost

Your mercy You gave

Your grace it healed me

 

My chains are broken

The shackles of sin opened

The Son has set me free

Sin has no claim over me

 

As I fall to my knees

I praise the One

Who gave it all for me

 

I have tasted

I have seen

You are good

 

Worthy of praise

We worship You

Worthy of sacrifice

We give our all to You

 

My chains are broken

The shackles of sin opened

The Son has set me free

Sin has no claim over me

 

Your forgiveness is a balm

Your love it heals me

Free at last

From the chains that bound me

 

Washed in the blood of the Lamb

Forgiven, clean, and free

The shackles have fallen away

Free at last

 

Free to be

As I was meant to be

Free at last

From a broken past

 

My chains are broken

The shackles of sin opened

The Son has set me free

Sin has no claim over me

  1. “For until the law sin was in the world. But sin is not imputed when there is no law.” We are living in a time like those before Moses where there is no law. The times of the New Testament where men are led by the Holy Spirit or by their own devices. So it is not sin that holds men captive. It is death(Heb.2:14,15). And by Jesus entering into death with us He conquered that death by His resurrection. When we believe in Him it makes His victory over death our victory too. This is why He is the way truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except through Him.

    Even so… Maranatha!!

    • That in no way invalidates the fact that there is sin. If there was not, then we would not need Jesus to be our intercessor because there would be nothing to intercede for. If there was no sin to hold men captive, then there would no longer be a need for forgiveness either. Also, the statement about there being no law is incorrect, Jesus said Himself that the law is still in force. Besides that, the second greatest commandment encompasses all the law and then some, think about it.

      • Yes there is sin. But, it is because men are natural and not spiritual(Gen.2:7, 1Cor.15:45-50) just as Adam was when he was made that we need Jesus. Not because men sometimes choose to do bad things.
        This is why Peter said that it was God’s plan from before the world was made that Jesus would come– “Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
        Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”1Peter1:20,21

        And is why Jesus said we must be born of the Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. Because “that which is born of the flesh is flesh. And that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” And flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God”. 1Cor.15:50.

        Jesus did not die to make bad people good. He died so that mortal people could have His gift of immortality.

      • That is true with the possible exception of your last statement – I say that as I am unsure of your meaning here. If you seriously mean exactly what you said, then you are mistaken.
        All people regardless of faith have immortality already. Our souls are immortal and will live on forever, in Hell or Heaven. If you are referring to the flesh becoming immortal, that is a benefit of living with God in eternity, but it is by NO means the reason Jesus died. Christ (means Messiah) died to redeem that which is evil, that which has sinned against Him, His very own enemies – us. Heaven will not be filled with perfect people, it will be filled with forgiven people. Christ lived and allowed His crucifixion that we may be forgiven, redeemed from our sins, and given a priceless free gift – salvation, life eternal with Him.
