“So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law. Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision to make you right with God, then Christ will be of no benefit to you. I’ll say it again. If you are trying to find favor with God by being circumcised, you must obey every regulation in the whole law of Moses. For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God’s grace.” Galatians 5:1-4 NLT
"Grace, grace, God's grace. Grace that will pardon and cleanse within. Grace, grace, God's grace. Grace that is greater than all my sin."
This is the lyric of an old gospel song. What truth there is in those simple, yet profound words. Thank God for His grace today and don't allow the devil to take you back into slavery. If you are a born again believer, you are free. Accept God's love and forgiveness, through Christ, as your assurance of salvation. Don't let anything or anyone persuade you otherwise.
“So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” John 8:36 NLT
Prayer for today: Father, in Jesus name, I ask that You help me rest in who You are and what You have done for me. I am Your child by grace.
