The Daily Breath of God
Tuesday, January 17 2012
I, too, try to please everyone in everything I do. I don't just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved. And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:33 NLTOne of the great freedoms that is given by the grace of God in and through Jesus the Christ is the desire and joy to say things, do things and give things that will bless someone else’s life. Salvation's goal is not to take us to heaven; it is to give us the blessing of a new nature, the nature of Jesus the Christ. His nature loves well, forgives freely, rejoices easily and is a blessing to family and friends. Grace enjoys expressing itself with goodness and thanksgiving so that people in our lives are refreshed along their journey. On this new day may you experience his grace that will allow you to be the balm that begins to heal others wounds. May your words, your attitudes, your expressions and your goals enjoy the freedom of asking for forgiveness so that those around you are well. May you be known as someone who delights abundantly in the grace of God.
