We are Saved by Grace!

“20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.  22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,  23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,  24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.“-Romans 3:20-24 (NIV)
As Christians, we need to remember our identity in God. We are righteous or in right standing with God. We are justified by grace. Grace is unmerited favor and a gift. It means we are not being rewarded or earning what God has already given us as a gift.  We are not justified by works or the law. The law guides us and works may be the fruit of obedience but those two things are not why we are saved. God gave us Jesus, who died on our behalf and took care of our past, present and future sins. He didn’t take care of some of our sins but all of them.
Are you living the life that Jesus bled and died for you to have? Jesus did not die for us to live a substandard life. He didn’t die for us to work for our salvation. He died so we could be in right standing with God and live not just any life. He wanted us to live life abundantly.  John 10:10 says, “10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” When we focus on the law and works, we are telling God his gift of grace is not good enough and we have to do the work.
Ask yourself, are you are living God’s best life for you? Are you trusting all aspects of your life to God in prayer? Are you focused on a mistake or error that God has forgotten about? You can trust anything and everything to God. He knows details about the person, place or thing you will never know so trust Him.  You are good enough today and do not have to wait until you have it all together before you can be all God has called you to be.
Remember who you are as a child of God. No person, place, thing or circumstance can negate your destiny. King David in Psalm 56:3-4 said the following: “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Mortals are mere meaning people are small or slight and our God plus us is always a majority. May God continue to remind you that you belong to him and that he loves you so much, He redeemed you. God bless you!
