LESSON TEXT: John 8:31-36; Ephesians1:3-7; Colossians 1:10-14
Results are a good way to measure the effectiveness of a plan or program.
However,results sometimes can be misleading or downright discouraging.
Some people who try intense exercise or diet changes may see little or no weight loss at first.
Many give up at that point,feeling their efforts were wasted.Long- term changes must be put into perspective.
When people come to Christ,they may experience immediate dynamic changes. Some changes however,will likely come at a slower pace.As Christians,we can be certain Christ is at work in our lives to bring to completion the results of redemption.
Philippians 2:12-13,Romans 8:28,Hebrews 12:2.
In this lesson we will identify some of the benefits of redemption we have in Christ and learn how to appropriate those benefits.
All the blessings of salvation come through our redemption by Christ.

(a) We are free from sin(Romans6:6-7) (John 8:31-36)
