David delighted in the Law, for he knew how lost we were before God gave the Law as a guide. But Jesus completes the Law and offers us freedom from the slavery of legalism and freedom from sin. This relationship is superior. Why go back to slavery?
We are made to worship and if it is not God it will be something else, including our selves. But only God will satisfy. All idols leave us enslaved. Find freedom in the fulfilling worship of Jesus.
Can you imagine holding God’s hand to cross the street? Crying on his shoulder, trusting him to comfort you? Like the dad you have, or wish your had. Or maybe the dad you hope to be? God is not concerned with being politically correct. He loves all his children equally, male, female, first born or last, we all inherit. Not because we behave perfectly. That’s an unreasonable expectation that Jesus fulfilled for us and saved us from. We only need…
Why the Law in light of Grace? God gave a Promise thought the covenant the Law was our guide and the promise fulfilled in Jesus.
Faith preceded the law. It is not by following rules that we are redeemed it is by faith. What is your faith growth plan?
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
How is your walk with the Lord. Let me tell you about a time when Peter needed some correction from Paul about drifting from a message of Grace and falling into the trap of rules and works. The Gospel should effect how we live (humble, graceful an in truth) not bound to a set of rules.
We all have a testimony, a user review if you will. Paul’s testimony is all about the Grace of Jesus and how Paul’s chief purpose is to glorify HIM. What moments in your life were “only God could do that” moments?
Grace and Peace to you from God. Have no other Gospel than that of Jesus Christ, our deliverer, our rescuer. We must recognize He is not only our savior, but also our Lord and let Him lead. Seek to please Him alone. Either our faith is in Jesus or in ourselves.
We should be motivated for the lost and motivated by our new life. We should be motivated to be Jesus ambassador.
We are an intersection between the physical and spiritual world. Even though our bodies are temporary tents, we are being renewed day by day preparing us to take possession of a greater dwelling in heaven. So while on earth we are called to serve Jesus to the best of our ability.
Three things that motivate generosity (a Christian Virtue). Let it be your legacy.
