Grace Works – Part 6 – Where are your roots?
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.” – John 15:5-6
Have you ever wondered why Jesus said things like, “Do as I command” or “I am the vine” without paying any homage to the law?
Has it ever occurred to you that the law, while a great tool to get you to Christ, has no place in the life of the believer?
Grace-Full growth is about knowing your roots! Grace –Full growth is about knowing Who is your Redeemer, Savior and Daddy!
Jesus didn’t come to give us a new morality – He came to set us Free! Free from what?
“So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” – Romans 7:4
You have been released from the law so that you may bear fruit for God! Bearing fruit for God is Being His light of Love, Peace, Hope, Joy, Forgiveness and Grace! This happens Only as you understand and grasp how great His Free Gift for you is!
Living in Freedom IS the Grace-Full path! Sharing that Freedom and helping others to understand it IS the Path of Grace, the mission of Jesus and everyone that believes in Him!
“Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4
Believe and Be Free! Believe and Be Righteous! Believe and Live! Believe and Be Grace-Full!
Yes it really is just that simple! Are you smiling with joy yet?
