“Blameless,” “Free,” “Not guilty,” “Free from condemnation,” “Delivered”: Allow those words to soak into your heart and mind on this day. When you read these words, say your name in front of these words. You, dear friend in Christ, have been delivered, set free; in Christ you are blameless. It is because of the life, death, resurrection and ascension of King Jesus that all who are in Christ are forgiven. Jesus stands in the gap!
Nevertheless, just as the apostle Paul reminds us in Romans 6:1-2, this does not give us the freedom to live as we choose just because His grace abounds! We are called to choose a daily life of obedience to the teachings of Jesus. Does your life reflect a life of gratitude and praise to Jesus?
Take a few moments to reflect on the ways that you have fallen short of God’s intentions for your life. Turn your heart and mind to God and ask for His deliverance and freedom.
