So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
(Romans 8:1, 2 NLT)

The invention of the safety bicycle in the late 1800’s resulted in great personal freedom and mobility in transportation for women who at that time lived in an oppressive male dominated society.(1) Traveling became much faster and easier but you still had to know where your destination was. When Jesus died on the cross for the sins of all humanity suddenly we were set free from the oppressive power of sin that causes us to be lost going in the wrong direction. By grace and not of our own effort we have been given a free ride to enter into heaven spending eternity in fellowship with King Jesus even though we do not deserve it. We are safe in our destination with Jesus so enjoy the free ride!
