Live in the Freedom of God's Eternal LOVE for You!
Romans 1:16-17 New International Version
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,[a] just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”[b]

Do we believe this? This is the absolute bedrock of the Christian faith. Jesus has done for us what we cannot do for ourselves. He has defeated death. He has forgiven our sins and made a way for us to be with our Heavenly Father forever. Nothing separates us from the love of God in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:39). This power is in the Gospel, not in something that we do. We receive this by faith that Jesus is still at work in our lives and in the world. As Psalm 104:14 declares, “You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate.” Do we believe that? Do we believe that God is with us? He is! That He loves us? He does! That we are His beloved children? We are! That is the Gospel! Go and live in the freedom of God’s eternal love for you.
