If you are a believer in Christ, but struggle with feelings of unrighteousness, then you don’t want to miss these comforting, inspiring words from your eternal Spiritual Bridegroom today.
“My beloved, even though the law wasn’t given directly to Gentiles, every person who tries to achieve righteousness through what they do or don’t do is still living under his or her own self-imposed law-based system.”
“This might lead you to wonder if the law is bad.”
“I did not come to do away with the law, but to fulfill it.”
“On a bloody cross. I lived a sinless life, making it possible for everyone who believes into Me to become the ‘righteousness of God.'”
“Take time to let that sink in.”
“I put an end to your futile attempts to earn righteousness and imparted My righteousness as a gift to you the moment you believed into Me.”
“Sadly, many who belong to Me are still living under a law-based system today, simply because they do not know who they already are.”
“Born into a world saturated with performance-based standards, they still believe they have to do something for Me in order to stay in ‘right’ relationship with Me and earn My affection.”
“This belief and the behavior that follows completely disregard My finished work.”
“Law causes a believer to focus on his or her performance for Me; grace causes a believer to focus on My perfect performance on his or her behalf and motivates him or her to live from My abundant life within.”
“If you fail to understand grace, you will inevitably experience unnecessary bondage to a performance-based lifestyle, trying to earn or deserve My blessings and favor.”
“This is as ridiculous as trying to walk into a room you are already in.”
“It’s impossible, because you are already there!”
“You have already been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Me.”
“Can you believe that?”
“You no longer have to ask for spiritual blessings because you already have My Spirit living in you without interruption!”
“What’s more, you are where I live, and any place I live is anointed—permeated with My holiness.”
“You are not holy because you act holy.”
“You are already and forever holy because of your eternal spiritual union with Me.”
Dear reader, would you say that you generally live under your own self-imposed law-based system or grace?
