Set Us Free

Something to think about.
 
Set Us Free 
 
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. Galatians 5:1
 
Christ has set us free from the bondage of sin. Freedom is not the absence of law or the exemption  from obeying an established set of principles. Freedom is the absence of debt. Christ has liberated us from the debt of sin. We are instructed not to enslave ourselves to the debt of sin. Sin is not without cost and the debt must be paid. The price of sin is not one that you can pay, you do not have the resources. Christ has, and He has made full payment for you. Accept your account as paid in full and sin no more.

Seeing the Same Perceiving It Differently

Something to think about.

Seeing the Same Perceiving It Differently

18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  1 Corinthians  1:18

We can all look at the same picture and perceive it differently. If you believe in Christ, you can look at the cross and see salvation, forgiveness, redemption, restoration, payment, regret, pain, conviction and horror.  If you don’t believe in Christ, all you see a crucified man.

The Fruit You Deserve

Something to think about.

The Fruit You Deserve

“”I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.””
Jeremiah 17:10 ESV

Is this a verse you claim for your life or is it a verse you fear? Do you look forward to the fulfillment of this verse or hope that it never comes to fruition. Are you living a life that will allow you to receive the best fruits for your life or are you living a life that will only produce sorrowful fruit?

Interesting questions, but the truth is without Christ we will receive the fruit we deserve. With Christ, we will receive the forgiveness and restoration provided by His life, death, and resurrection.

Dwell

Something to think about.

Dwell

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler

and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his pinions,

and under his wings you will find refuge;

his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

5 You will not fear the terror of the night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,

ten thousand at your right hand,

but it will not come near you.

8 You will only look with your eyes

and see the recompense of the wicked. Psalms 91:1-8

If you dwell “in the shelter of the Most High” you will be protected from the assaults of this life. You will look out from under His wings and see the terrible reward of the wicked. I want to dwell in the shelter of the Most High.
