Religion says believe my way and do your best and maybe you will fit in, Grace says, “Come to me those who are weary and burdened and I will give you Rest!” Religion says do this and that and improve yourself and maybe you will be good enough, Grace says, “It is Finished” Grace says, “Love one another and thus fulfill all the law and the prophets!”
The challenge is most Christians Say they are living under Grace but they are acting like, talking like and treating others like they are living under the law.
“Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.” – Luke 18:43
“IMMEDIATELY” – that’s when Everything changes when you have Faith in Christ. If you missed the last devotional “LOVES Magic Pill” please check that out for looking into Faith.
Most people follow a demanding, vindictive god who has thunderbolts and is ready to punish them at a seconds notice – sorry to disappoint but that isn’t Who The God Is! God Is Love! And Hid demands to those who believe are “Love one another” “grow in Love and Grace” – with every encounter that Jesus had while here on earth this is the Resounding message. He continually brings us back to a Love based relationship and Not a works of law based religion.
Because Jesus was and is the second Adam. He brought in Grace and Truth. He left us with Peace that passes All understanding because of Gods Love that is beyond All comprehension!
I know that the Freedon is not taught at most churches and many want you to feel shame guilt and pain for your past or present or be afraid of your future. But I humbly invite you to look at a different God. The Only God Who has provided this Peace and Hope and Life I now enjoy.
