The Daily Breath of God
Monday, September 10 2012
For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God's wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17 NLTThere is a beautiful gift given to us in and through Jesus the Christ. It is not just some kind of forgiveness so that we may continue in our addictions to our old sins. There will always be a great contrast between what once we were and what now by the grace of God we are. God's grace is his love given in power, by which he grants total exemption from judgment to men and women who were guilty and condemned because of their sin. Grace has nothing to do with our worthiness or what we have done or failed to do. This is the wow of salvation, a life full of freedom, encouragement, with attitudes and actions that bless us and those around us. Today may your life bring praise and glory to the one who called you by his grace. May you rejoice in this life in Jesus the Christ that is eternal and as you delight in him may you discover what it means to give glory to his name.
