Is there a way that our spirits can be strengthened?
Are there some things that are “of no value to those who observe”?
“Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by Grace, not by the eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who observe such rituals. We have an alter from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.” – Hebrews 13:9-10
Grace while it may be a new concept to some is not new to Jesus or the Bible. In fact Grace is how we are saved and as we can plainly see here is what will strengthen you.
What will not strengthen you?
Ceremonial foods and rituals or in other words- “doings” Or legalist observances are of “no value” to anyone.
Christ came to radically change the way we relate to an all holy God forever or His life and mission here was a suicide!
Because “without faith it is impossible to please God.” And believing in Christ Is accepting all this “in Faith.”
If you are “in Christ” you have a place to eat! If you are “in Christ” you have an alter unlike the old one that you couldn’t go near!
This alter is based on faith and powered by Grace. This is not body building that will someday die, this is Spirit Building based on Love and trained through Grace. The training is Here and Now in each and every moment that we are here.
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
