The Daily Breath of God
Thursday, January 26 2012
Everything that does not come from faith is sin. Romans 14:23This statement in the Word of God is not one of condemnation, anxiety or stress. In reality, it is bathed in grace so that we may discover the life that has been given in and through Jesus the Christ. So what is faith? Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. It is not a system, belief or otherwise. It is the gift of God through his grace and it is living. Faith therefore can see and hear. I like to think of it this way, that grace is the river and faith is the channel along which the beauty of grace flows down to refresh and renew our souls. Being free from all kinds of condemnation, having thoughts and emotions that are relaxed and experiencing joy and gladness flow from the river of grace through faith into and through our lives. On this new day may you experience the life called faith by the grace of our Lord. May your fears, your anxieties and your regrets find no place to express themselves in the beauty of who you are because of the grace and faith of Christ.
