The Daily Breath of God
Friday, January 27 2012
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16, 17 NLTWe are born with a nature that always has a tendency for low self-esteem, peer pressure which is condemnation of all kinds, easily irritated and the inability to forgive well. The problem is that for many of us, we also feel that God looks at us the same way we feel about ourselves and how we view others. But the grace of God is completely different. This love given without condemnation or judgment gives us the freedom to no longer be mastered by our old nature and changes our view of God, ourselves and others, it is called eternal life. It is a freedom that is known and experienced because of the grace found in Christ. On this new day that has been given to you as a gift of God, may you relax and rejoice in who you are because of Jesus the Christ. His grace will refresh your thinking, your emotions and your view of others. It is absolutely OK to rejoice, give thanks and not get irritated.
