Freedom, Grace, and Hope for 2009

"And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly." - Romans 5:5-6

Romans is a great book that lays out the Christian faith in a legal manor. The Apostle Paul is strategically educating his readers on the truth that will set us free and how the Truth (Jesus) fulfilled the Old Testament Law. The conclusion is that Christ-followers are free from the bondage of sin.

There is also a great and powerful gift in the GRACE of God. God's grace not only sets us free but draws us into a closer relationship with our creator, grants us a desire for discipline, and brings a special hope in our future. Therefore, as we strive to please Him and worship Him, we may face struggles, but these struggles are only temporary and pale in comparison to Jesus' love.

This is a great way to start the new year....there is hope, don't forget that.

You know I love ya - Don
