The Daily Breath of God

Just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4New life is always refreshing to us. It can be the birth of our children, grandchildren or even our great grandchildren. In those moments we find ourselves celebrating with emotions and thoughts of joy, no matter what we may personally be going through. Ever notice the joy of children when they are around puppies? Well God’s grace is his love given in power through the life of Jesus Christ without any condemnation which brings with it new life, this is his glory. Here is a question – “what is true of the resurrection?” The resurrection proclaims the glory and grace of the power of God. It was a public announcement that the reign of sin and death has been broken. In his grace we now have been given a new life and we know this is true because God’s Word expresses it as a fact. Today allow yourself to rejoice because of his grace that has been given to you. The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. Just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, you too have been given new life so that you may now offer your life as a living and holy sacrifice (Romans 12:1) Grace removes all kinds of condemnation and lets your emotions and thoughts be refreshed so that you are choosing to celebrate in this new life. Enjoy!
