The Gift of Eternal Life

Romans 6 23 christmas.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Spiritual death and separation from God is the price we pay for sin.  But because of God’s love for humanity He sent His only Son to pay the price that set us free. Eternal life is given by the grace of God through faith in Jesus, not by our own efforts or works so that no one will ever be able to boast that He earned or deserved eternal life, it is a free gift of God.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for Spiritual Freedom

Psalm 100 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 

I am thankful for the freedom to be able to enter into the house of the Lord to praise and worship my Lord and Savior.  Yes, we have a constitutionally protected right to religious freedom and that’s great, but I’m talking about the spiritual freedom we received when Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for our sins.  I’m talking about abiding in God’s truth which has set us free from a life of sin and death.  Because of God’s love and mercy, we can have a relationship with Him, we can come into his presence to praise and worship Him and for that I am thankful.

The Truth Will Set You Free

John 8 32

 

Verse of the Day:  John 8:32

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

 

Christ has the power to make you free and those that are set free by the Son are truly free.  If you accept and obey His teaching as truth you are true disciples.  You will know the truth when your mind and your heart are opened to a greater understanding and are set free from the bondage of sin.

For His Purpose

Romans 6 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:13

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

 

If you are born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. Because you’ve been set free you can now offer your whole self, both body and soul to God to be used for His purpose.  Devote yourself to God and to His service for His purpose.

Set Free

Galatians 5 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

 

We have been set free from sin through Jesus Christ yet many still live with the shame and guilt of their past.  If you are born again you are a new creation with a new way of thinking.  You have been given a second chance to be who God created you to be.  Don’t go back to the sin God has already freed you from.

Healing

Luke 13 12

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 13:12

When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”

 

Jesus already knows your condition and He is calling you because He has compassion for you.  If you need healing come to Jesus, He can heal your mind, body and soul.  He can set you free from whatever chains are holding you down.
