The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, January 11 2012
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:16, 17Over the years of my journey through life I have tried to find the words that would give people some idea of the grace of God through Jesus the Christ. At this point, what I like to say is that grace is the power of God’s love given in and through Jesus the Christ without any condemnation, shame or guilt. In this place faith is not a belief system; it is an assurance of the cleansing love of God so that we may live life with the freedom of joy, peace and his blessed pleasure of who we are. Here all our values, goals and views of ourselves become refreshed and renewed. On this new day may you be experiencing the goodness of grace and faith along your journey. Let your heart, your soul and your mind find words and tones of praise to the glory of God, for you are dearly loved. In this place your joy will be full and you will discover the strength and blessing God has for you.
