Spurgeon discusses the various aspects of this liberty, including freedom from the bondage of sin, the penalty of sin, the guilt of sin, the dominion of sin, the fear of death, and the fear of the law. He also highlights the privileges and rights that believers have in Christ, such as access to God’s Word, the throne of grace, the church, and ultimately, heaven.
