A reminder for today
Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. (Romans 6:1-4)
Sin is broken and destroyed by our Lord so we cannot continue to sin anymore. We joined our Lord in death and rose from the ashes of our previous lives to the light that is our new existence. We climbed out of the pit of despair and into the joy of freedom from sin and judgement. We walk differently and we talk differently. We think differently and we understand differently. We are changed by His love and mercy and as we align ourselves more with Him we become more like Him. The more we become like the Lord the more His grace will be highlighted in our lives.
You are free my friend. This means you are free from the darkness that this world brings. You are made perfect in your acceptance of the Lord and you are so special to Him. You are so much more than meets the eye and you are so wonderfully created.
So stand up, my friend, and do not let your challenges get you down today. Remember that you are made free and sin has no more power over you. Do not let people bring you down, because an all-powerful God is lifting you up and watches over you.
Lord, let us flourish in this day and bring praises to you in all that we do. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
