Good morning! “But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not! Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down. For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God.” Galatians 2:17-19NLT.
While the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus offered us forgiveness of sins, it was never a mechanism for us to continue sinning. Jesus often healed and forgave – instructing the sinner to go and sin no more. After they were healed and/or forgiven they went and told people about this Jesus who came into their life and healed them.

Are you ready to let him into your life? ________
Father God, you know us more intimately than anyone else. You see us in our current state. You know the day and time when we asked for forgiveness from our past mistakes and sins – yet, you threw them deep into the ocean to be remembered no more, thank you! Lord, thank you for your willingness to love us enough to save us. You could have stretched out your hand and emptied the earth of us, yet you changed your mind and sent your son. There is no greater love. Father, as we go about the day leaning on you for strength, forgiveness, comfort, peace, healing and discernment – speak to us Lord! Lord, help us to hear you and be obedient to your word. You are our tower of strength and we worship and praise you because of who you are – Alpha Omega, Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords, King of kings, the Great I Am. Cover us today, Father. Free the captives. Protect the innocent. Expose the truth. Reconcile our nation to you. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
