Many believe Adam blamed Eve when God confronted him about eating the forbidden fruit. But look closely, and you’ll realize Adam tried to shift
the blame to God. “The woman YOU gave me made me do it!” The implication: “God, If You hadn’t given her to me this would never have happened.”
Not much has changed since. When faced with our own sins, we want to place blame anywhere but on our own shoulders. We will blame God for our problems, or try to blame others. When Samuel confronted Saul for his sin, not destroying the Amalekites, the king blamed the people, and tried to shift the blame to God as well. “We saved the best to sacrifice to YOUR God…”
I have no one to blame for my sins but myself. I am grateful, therefore, that my sins, though they be many, are forgiven through the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. I don’t have to try shifting the blame; Jesus took took the blame upon Himself. I am blame-free! I am shame-free!
I am free to run (I am free to run)!
I am free to dance (I am free to dance)!
I am free to live for You (I am free to live for You)!
I am free! (I am free)!
Rom 8:1, 2 There is now, therefore, no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. (NAS)
