I have literally seen this everywhere. On Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, discussions…you name it, and I’ve seen it. So it’s about time I blogged about it, duh.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
Simple, yet something we tend to overlook: freedom. We never have to worry or bear the burdens of sin and doubt, for our Savior removes those and gives us freedom.
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God…And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
We are His children. He loves us and protects us, encourages us and refines us. And somehow, we are beautiful and worthy in sharing His Glory.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
How can we focus on the bad, when we have a God who is working so hard to make us see the good? How can we fear the unknown, when our story was written before we were even created? How can we doubt, when the most powerful One loves us this much?
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future…nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Chills. Just chills.
