From Guilt to Grace

From Guilt to Grace

What a beautiful picture of God's Grace, Mercy and Love for His hurting and wandering children...

When we find our identity in Christ, we need to understand and receive God's Grace and let go of the guilt and shame accumulated in our wanderings.

We can be saved and forgiven, but if we don't allow ourselves to experience His Grace, we are unable to fully receive the freedom and abundant life He desires for us...all of which are blessings that come from truly receiving what He so lovingly longs to give us.

Let us cling to this picture of His essence and character...grace, love, forgiveness and mercy...all of WHO HE IS, given freely and unconditionally to those who believe and receive.

"And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. (1 Timothy 1:14-15)
