To a Grace-Full 2014! – 3
“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” – Zephaniah 3:17
Are you like most in the days of Jesus – looking for a sword and disappointed with The Warrior who saves?
It’s not a shameful thing to admit – in fact it’s very brave to admit and it leads you to a very cool way of life called Grace!
You see when Jesus came He disappointed all the ones that were just sure He was coming as a warrior of a different kind to set things straight – today people “do” the same thing to a point – they think that once they are “in Christ” they have to fight and struggle to try to do more and do better – and somehow God will shine on them and by His grace they will make it through another day “doing” better than the day before – Wow – God must be smiling at all that effort!
Look at this passage – HE IS the One Who saves and He takes delight in you and in His Love He will No longer rebuke you!
Because He has saved you from ALL condemnation and from the eternal hamster wheel of accomplishment called law which you could never keep anyway!
He is dancing over you with singing right now! Tell me does God dance over sin with singing?
Once you have accepted Him you are a new creation – can the new creation be stuffed back in the cocoon?
Do I know why God made you the way He did? NO! I dont pretend to know and I dont have to know and I dont want to know – I just want to Love you like He did, does and always will!
