Day 285

REDEEMER FROM THE LAW

But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son. . .

to redeem those under law,

that we might receive the full rights of sons.

Galatians 4:4-5

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, the law is the law. But My grace is. . .My grace. And it's sufficient to fulfill what the law could never do. The law told you the right thing to do, but My redeeming grace em-powers you to accomplish it. By yourself? Not a chance. But that's why I came to earth as your redeemer: to give you full ownership in the kingdom of heaven and to move beyond the law to full-fledged grace living and joy-filled giving.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
I was weary of the struggle between right and wrong, Lord.  Aren't laws made to be broken? But You entered the scene, a bright light in the shadows, to do what the law could never do. You adopted me as Your own, forgave me, and empowered me to choose right. You are the redeemer from the law.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Grace gives me the freedom to be who God designed me to be.
