Scripture clearly teaches that he who the Son has set free is free indeed (John 8:36). However, Scripture also teaches that it is entirely possible for a Christian to again come under a yoke of slavery (Romans 6:16).

Romans 6:3-14 answer the question, how do those of us who are under grace live without being characterized by sin? Paul answers logically. First, by understanding the nature of our identification with Christ (Romans 6:2-10). For Paul, what a believer understands is terribly important. The key word in Romans 6:3-10 is “know,” which occurs three times (Romans 6:3, 6, 9). Above all, Paul wants us to know or understand the nature of our union with Christ. To help us, he employs the powerful metaphor of baptism. For Paul, a believer’s baptism symbolizes wondrous realities.

Man is enslaved by sin and all the consequences of it. He cannot keep from sinning; therefore, he bears the consequences of sin: guilt, shame, hurt, pain, sorrow, suffering, destruction, devastation, brokenness, death, and judgment. For man to be freed, he must fulfill two conditions. The first condition is belief or faith in Christ (John 8:30; cp. John 1:12-14; Rom. 10:9-11). As the gospel was proclaimed, they listened. They did not slumber or sleep, nor allow their minds to wander. They allowed no distraction whatsoever. They heard and "believed on Christ"; therefore, their hearts were stirred and they reached out for Jesus (cp. John 3:3; 1 Peter 2:2-3). The second condition is continuing or abiding in the Lord's Word. The idea is that of dwelling, just as a person dwells at home. Very simply, what Jesus was saying is that a person who really believes will continue both to study and to do the Word (2 Tim. 2:15).

In Acts 3:21, Peter, in his sermon at Solomon’s Colonnade spoke about the time when God would restore everything. The Person through whom this restoration will be accomplished is none other than the Messiah Himself, the Lord Jesus Christ, and it will take place at His Second Coming. In the final chapter of his book, Zechariah describes in detail six key events that will take place in the periods known as the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord when Christ returns to earth in visible power and glory to establish God’s kingdom throughout the world. The first event Zechariah described concerns Israel during the Great Tribulation, namely, the attack of Jerusalem (14:1-2).

After Gideon had led a small band of soldiers to defeat the cruel enemy of Israel who had oppressed them for so long, they sought to exalt him as king over Israel and to establish a ruling dynasty (8:22-23). In great humility, Gideon rejected their offer and declared that the Lord Himself was to rule over His people. But, despite his rejection of the kingship, Gideon began to demonstrate a heart that was not pure toward God, a life that was not totally committed to God (8:24-32). The permissive, compromising life he lived up until his death is clearly spelled out by Scripture

The fact that the Israelites had repented of their evil deeds did not translate into automatic deliverance for them; they had to fight for it. The Midianites did not just walk away. Rather, they gathered as they normally did in their huge number to terrorize and oppress the Israelites (v. 33). When this happened again, first, the Lord Himself prepared His people for battle through His chosen servant Gideon (6:34-35). The Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon, clothing him with His presence and power, and giving him the wisdom and ability to lead the troops of Israel.

Throughout the Bible, we can see the importance of helpers towards the fulfillment of God’s purpose and plans for individuals and nations. All the heroes of the Bible were people who relied on others to succeed in all their endeavours. Abraham did not single-handedly deliver Lot, his nephew, from the people who abducted him. Rather, he had the support of 318 people that belonged to his household to overcome Lot’s abductors and set him free (Gen. 14:11-16). Moses did not single-handedly deliver the Israelites from captivity in Egypt. God provided Aaron, his brother, to help him in his mission (Exodus 4:13-16). When he complained to God about the burden of being solely responsible for leading the Israelites during their wilderness journeys, God raised up seventy of the elders of Israel to help him (Numbers 11:10-17). David also did not single-handedly achieve great success as a military leader and become the king of Israel. God raised up several men of valour who volunteered their services and helped him to take over the throne of Israel (1 Chron. 11-12).
