Romans 5:18 "Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men."
Last week-end I went to a Beth Moore Simulcast and she spoke about grace. I never get tired of hearing about God's grace. His grace is mind blowing. She said something that stuck in my head she said, "Jesus has enough righteousness for both of us." In other words, Jesus' righteousness is enough for me and Him. I have never been righteous and without Christ I never will me.
I have been thinking about this. It's so true then these thoughts came to me. Jesus sets us free to admit who we are and to be who we are.
Who Am I?
I am a flawed, fallen, imperfect human being who sins and makes mistakes. My sins cause pain to God and sometimes others. I can admit who I am...an imperfect human who is broken and flawed because I am also :
Loved beyond measure or human comprehension
Chosen by God, the creator of this universe to be with Him and to know Him.
Wanted by my God, He desires me, He wants to be with me forever.
I am liked by my God.
I Belong to Him.
Because God loves me and is helping me to accept His love I am also a person who is learning to accept and love others for who they really are...imperfect, flawed, fallen and loved beyond all measure.
I think this is the beginning of the freedom Jesus spoke about. He said, "If the son sets you free you will be free indeed." John 8:36
Grace.....I hope I never get tired of hearing about God's wonderful grace. What are you learning about grace?
