The Daily Breath of God
Friday, February 03 2012
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. Romans 5:1, 2How many tears have been shed along our journey through life because of our own sins or the sins of others? In a sense, sin puts a weight upon our soul that makes us feel and think in ways that do not refresh our lives. The beauty of what has been given through faith in Jesus the Christ is that we have gained access into this grace. Think of the invitation to walk into a room of grace. Here everything is alive and because of Christ it is ours. In this room there are no dead things such as anger, lust, regret, wounds that never heal, bitterness and all kinds of irritations. For these things have no access into the room of Godís grace. No, in the room of Godís grace everything on every shelf is good, alive and a blessing. Here you find joy, healing, gentleness, kindness, peace, patience, love and all kinds of encouragement. The blessing, they belong to us because of the beauty of Jesus the Christ. On this new day may you enjoy your freedom into this room of grace. As our Lord has said, the door is open to you, now and forever, so that you may enjoy your freedom in him. Here all wounds can be healed and your rejoicing can become just who you are.
