The Daily Breath of God
Friday, January 11 2013
This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God's wonderful grace. Colossians 1:6 NLTWhat a beautiful picture of what the salvation that is given in Jesus the Christ looks like. This is obviously not a religion or a set of standards by which we must prove ourselves to God. God's good news is his grace that renews thoughts, emotions and desires. Paul gave a hint of the power of God's grace in a man or woman's life when he wrote to the Galatians. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. There is no law against these things. Galatians 5:22,23 NLT. This salvation which is here called - changed lives - brings freedom that makes new, you and your family. Today may you choose to enjoy a changed life given to you by the Lord; it will bless your socks off. There is nothing in all creation that will find fault with this new nature. So go ahead and live in the freedom that is yours because of Grace. Enjoy!
