Are you feeling chained down or held back, condemned by the world? Do you feel disapproved or censored by the world around you? Feeling condemnation? Would you rather live your life with freedom?
There is a way and a promise that there is no eternal condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Whatever you are going thru and feeling, turn to Jesus and invite Him into your heart and your life as your Lord and Savior. Ask Him for wisdom and discernment to help you navigate through this life. Allow Him to create a new and clean heart in you so that you can live a transformed life.
‘So from now on we regard no one from a human point of view [according to worldly standards and values]. Though we have known Christ from a human point of view, now we no longer know Him in this way . Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. But all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ [making us acceptable to Him] and gave us the ministry of reconciliation [so that by our example we might bring others to Him], that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people’s sins against them [but canceling them]. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation [that is, restoration to favor with God]. ‘2 Corinthians 5:16-19
Therefore, you can walk out the rest of your life born again, knowing you are new, and without condemnation! Nevertheless, choose to live your life with and by faith in Jesus!
Firstly, let’s be the dads because we are in Christ Jesus can live our lives so filled with joy and love because we know that we won’t receive a guilty verdict before God and hence the punishment of eternal condemnation. Secondly, let’s choose to be the dads who believe in Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior! Finally, we can grab a hold of fully the promises of God found in today’s verse of the day that there is now no condemnation for us because we are in Christ Jesus!
So what does that mean for us as dads and how can we put today’s verse of the day to practice to help us live in the freedom that comes with Jesus and the love that overflows into our wives and kids?
