So I greet you with the great words, grace and peace! We know the meaning of those words because Jesus Christ rescued us from this evil world we’re in by offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins. God’s plan is that we all experience that rescue. Galatians 1:3-4 (MSG)
This thing we call the Cross......we are so comfortable with it we almost treat it like a piece of furniture. We talk about it, we celebrate it on holidays, we wear it as jewelry....it's part of our vanacular. But, do we really understand it? Do we fully grasp what it is supposed to mean to us?
There is a song that says "The Cross has made you flawless." (performed by MercyMe). What does that mean to you? What would it looked like if we lived our lives as if the Cross had made us flawless? What would it mean to us to treat others as if the Cross had made them flawless?
What would happen to our heads and our hearts if we let go of the burdens we carry about self-worth and lived unblemished, unmarked by our doubts? What would it mean if we lived our lives as if we were enough.
We are enough. God said so when Jesus said "It is finished." Done. They are all loved; they are all accepted. They are enough because I was enough.
