The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, January 18 2012
Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes. Romans 10:4From the time we are born and along our entire journey we learn how to judge and evaluate ourselves and others. It may begin as peer pressure and we seem to learn to sense our value by what we have and who our friends are. These standards impact our emotions as to how we feel about ourselves, others and the situations we are looking at. This impacts all our relationships from God, marriage, family, the work place and the church. In this place we find condemnation, frustration and at times such fatigue that we divorce from the place we find ourselves to find something new. Grace that is in Jesus the Christ brings a totally new perspective of who we are and when enjoyed, allows a freedom in our emotions and attitudes about ourselves, others and even our Lord, that it causes thanksgiving, kindness and encouragement in the place we find ourselves. Grace gives a righteousness that cleanses our attitudes in such a way that we experience the beauty of the life of God’s grace in the details of our lives. On this new day that has never been before, nor will come again may you enjoy the encouragement of grace in your emotions and attitudes. This will bless you and overwhelm those around you with refreshment and joy. Be willing to go and celebrate this new day of grace in your life. Your smile will be habit forming right down to the depth of your soul.
