Are you still a stranger?
Do you see yourself as a foreigner to God?
Doesn’t sin separate us from God?
“For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” – Ephesians 2:18-20
What difference Jesus makes in your life depends primarily on how much you accept His Grace.
Grace makes us sons and daughters through the work that Christ did on the cross. By Grace through Faith you can be a member of an amazing household!
Just look at some of the qualities of His household:
1) Based on Love- John 3:16, John 13:34
2) Based on No Condemnation- John 3:17, Romans 8:1
3) Based on Non-Judgment- Colossians 2:16, Romans 2:1
4) Based on Peace- John 16:33, John 14:27
Through Christ we have access to the Father not based on what we did as that would never be good enough but based on what He did!
Does sin separate us from God? Yes but Christ reconciles us back to Him! Christ is the reason we can stand confidently before the thrown of Almighty God and be at Peace! Christ is the reason we can have no condemnation and know that the Love of Almighty God covers us.
Take a moment to be in a place and have a time where you probably won’t be disturbed. Take a few deep breathes and just relax a bit more every time you exhale. Once you feel relaxed go back to breathing normally and:
Breathe in and say:
“God let me Be”
Breathe out and say:
“In Your household”
Practice this way until you sense that He is welcoming you with open arms and He Loves you!
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!!
