The Daily Breath of God
Tuesday, July 01 2014
God's law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God's wonderful grace became more aboundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God's wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:20, 21Sin is the damnation of the soul. It is self seeking, all consuming condemnation and its goal is death. Not just death to ourselves, but death in our relationships with God, with family and with friends. God's grace is his love given without condemnation so that we may live in our journey without fear, guilt, shame or a constant bad self image. In his grace relationships are restored, refreshed and renewed. Grace gives joy and freedom in our relationship with God and man and provides a life that is called eternal. Here, eternal is not a length of time, but a quality of life. It is life as our Lord knows life, fresh, relaxing, new every morning. On this new day, may you rejoice in knowing that grace is more than a word, it is God's love expressed in and through you and the life you live is given to you on this day to refresh and bless you along your journey, as well as those around you. Grace lets you bless others along their journey, even if they do not deserve it. You will like this day.
