Is it a Band-Aid or a cleansing?
What did Jesus do for you?
Is it possible that your Jesus is too small?
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.” – 1 John 1:8-10
I have sinned (past tense) He forgave me and purified me from all unrighteousness (past tense) now what?
“LOVE GOD AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER”!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is God’s Love amazing or what?
He sent His only Son so that we could be purified and cleansed from ALL unrighteousness, He made it so that we are no longer under the law which caused our sin and all He ask is that you believe.
Now here is my question- With that kind of amazing Love, Forgiveness, Cleansing and Hope why do people still want to go back to the law for some form of righteousness?
Are you a “new creation” or a person with a Band Aid?
Was the purpose of the law fulfilled in you or just given a vacation?
Here is a meditation for you. In a place and at a time when you probably won’t be disturbed take several deep breaths and with every exhalation let your stress out and stop trying, let Him be in you. As you take these breaths begin to get a picture of with Jesus in you, cleansed, purified and a new creation standing before an All Holy God Almighty who cannot look at sin but is holding the new pure you in His Loving gaze as His new creation. As you get this picture let this be your Contemplative Prayer today:
“Thank you God for You Alone made me a new creation”
Practice this until you start to cry with the knowledge of His Love for you!
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!
