Embracing The Gift – 2
“To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” – Isaiah 54:9-10
Does God swear lightly? If The God of All creation makes an oath can your trust it?
How can God swear to never be angry at us again if we can still sin under the law?
Answer: The Gift!
The reason why Jesus is really not that big a deal for most is simple – they dont see the Full Extent of The Gift!
You are no longer under the law once you accept The Gift! You are one of God’s children, Loved by The Most Power-Full Being in the universe and you have been Reconciled or made a part of Him again like Adam and Eve were!
The reason He wont rebuke you any longer is simple – it would be like Him rebuking His right arm or His left big toe! You are part of Him! EMBRACE IT!
The Bible tells us “by His stripes we are healed” – does that mean the ultimate flu shot? NO! It means we have been healed from the separation of sin and we are now and forever more part of Him!
If you think anything less of the cross than it 100% completing you and connecting you with God – your god is not God!
To Embrace The Gift of Christ is to Fully Embrace Who He Is, What He Did and What position that places you in with God!
Embrace yourself today as God’s finished work in Christ! God Loves you as you are NOT as you “should” be!
