Good afternoon to everyone, be aware of how right you are with God this week, and you will soar in your businesses and occupations.
Super Abounding Grace
The gospel is the revelation of God’s righteousness, that we are clothed with. (Romans 1:17) It is not about what you have done wrong, but about what Jesus did right for us at Calvary.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV)
Don’t focus on where you missed it, rather focus on what Jesus did for you at the cross, see who you are in Christ, and the truth that you are innocent! If you keep looking back in your past with regret, and look to your future with fear, you will just continue to condemn yourself, and live in guilt. This will cause you to question God’s love, and bring you under a law mentality, instead of a righteousness mentality.
God loves you so much that in Christ He has set you up for eternal success and victory, and He has completely defeated our enemy and brought him to nothing. I want to share this quote from Francois du Toit;
“We have in our ignorance given far too much credit to the devil. He is defeated and disarmed. In the revelation of the gospel, he is brought to nought and rendered completely powerless. (1 Corinthians 2:6-8; Colossians 2:14-15). His sole aim has always been to keep mankind as ignorant as he himself was concerning their (mankind’s) inclusion in Christ. It was our ignorance and unbelief that empowered him to do so.”
Know that in Christ there is no condemnation, (divine sentence) and you are free now to succeed at whatever you set your hand to do. If you miss it, remember that where sin abounds, grace does super abound. (Romans 5:20)
The enemy has been defeated, and the gospel, good news announcing Jesus complete victory, is that you have been made righteous, you can rest in the finished work of the cross, the sin debt was paid, there is no more debt between you and God! If you do mess up, then thank God for His super-abounding grace, because in your weakness, God by His grace gives you strength. Reign in life through Christ this week!
