“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution,
or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
No, in all these things we are more
than conquerers through him
who loves us.”
ROMANS 8:35, 37 ESV
LOVE HAS COME TO RESCUE US. There is so much more than the life that is staring us in the face today…or the hopes that we have for tomorrow…or the regrets that we carry from yesterday. Fear, guilt, and worry exact a steep toll from our lives, stealing our peace of mind. But, the debt has been repaid. Our lives are made new when we offer our hearts to the grace that waits for us in Jesus Christ. Every broken dream, and forgotten promise, and shattered life will be gently restored by the Hands that carried the cross. Mercy triumps at the cross. What a remarkable sacrifice made for all of humanity’s sake! I want every facet of my life to reflect the incredible freedom I find only in walking with Him. Not perfectly, but purposefully. My life, my hopes, and my dreams, are just that: mine. Thinly veiled attempts at personal gain. What truer gratitude than to offer them to the One who loves me more than life itself? And perhaps, I will find there is so much more to life than I could ever imagine. Let all the world know: JESUS SAVES!
