The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, April 16 2014
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17The natural nature we are born with along our entire journey through this life, gives us moment after moment of feelings of low self-esteem, guilt, condemnation, stress and the inability to forgive well. Many feel that God looks at them the same way they feel about themselves and as they view others. But the grace of God is completely different. He cannot say it any clearer than this - God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Grace in Jesus the Christ is a salvation that gives us the freedom to no longer be mastered by our old sinful nature. It does not mean that it is gone, but that it is no longer the controller of our life. This freedom of grace brings encouragement, kindness, refreshment and forgiveness in the midst of life's opportunities. On this new day, enjoy this freedom of grace that is in you because of Jesus the Christ. His grace will renew your emotions, thinking, words and your view of others. Being overwhelmed by grace is not just a statement; it is a freedom that produces delight, praise, and thanksgiving in our Lord. With the wonderful by- product of being a blessing to others.
