The Daily Breath of God
Friday, July 11 2014
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 living gift given to us 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 with new emotions, new attitudes of encouragement, and new actions that bless us and those around us. Today may your life bring praise and joy to the one who called you by his grace. Let yourself rejoice in this life in Jesus Christ that is eternal and as you delight in him may you discover what it means to give glory to his name. Enjoy!
