Not Earned

Clothed with humanity, God’s Son gave his body to be the sin-offering so that God could once and for all condemn the guilt and power of sin.  So now every righteous requirement of the law can be fulfilled through the Anointed One living his life in us. And we are free to live, not according to our flesh, but by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit!

– Romans 8:3-4 The Passion Translation

Because of Jesus, we are free to live.

Free to live loved.

Free to know love.

Free to love.

Not because we work really hard to deserve it.

Not because we are strong enough to do everything perfectly.

But because He gave Himself for us.

We are free to live, not according to the strength of our flesh, but according to the strength of God’s love.

All that God requires of us has been satisfied in Jesus.

And Jesus is satisfied to live with us, love through us, forgive us, and empower us to live in the full freedom of His finished work.

May the dynamic power of the Spirit of God within you fill you with overflowing joy and an uncompromising desire to celebrate this truth all day long.
