Free to Be

Psalm 22:31-32
And I will live for the LORD; my descendants will serve you. The generation to come will be told of the Lord, that they may proclaim to a people yet unborn the deliverance you have brought.

From generation to generation…each of us is given the responsibility and the joy to pass along the Good News. Jesus shows us that we are loved by God unconditionally. He saved us from endlessly trying to prove ourselves worthy…an exercise that eventually always ends in defeat. It’s not about our worthiness but about God’s love. It’s about grace. In following Jesus…we are freed of the bondage of the pursuit of possessions, power and prestige. In dying to our ego-centric desires…we are freed to become our true selves in Christ. In serving God…we serve the world so that God’s kingdom can truly come.

Suggested song of the day– “Pour Me Out” on the Give Praise and Thanks album.
