No Condemnation

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.” – Romans 8:1-2; CSB

Wow.

What a statement, Lord! What a proclamation!

Do you hear that, saints? There is no condemnation!

None! It’s gone!

What a truth! What a glorious, amazing, miraculous, impossible truth!

And yet, God has made it possible. God has worked the miracle!

What does this mean?

Ambassadors for Christ

The other night, I began to have a heavy burden laid on my heart. It is a burden that all Christians should carry, though some of us may carry it more than others.

This burden is that of witnessing to my faith.

We should all be preaching the message, not just with our actions, but with our words as well. However, with this burden came something heavier:

Do my actions reflect my faith? Or is the message of God discredited as a result of the life that I live?

If I preach the gospel to those around me, particularly those who know me and see me regularly, will my message of the life-changing work of Christ have impact if my life doesn’t look like Christ changed it?

The Call of the Spirit

It has been quite some time since I have written, and so much has happened. From being diagnosed with severe depression, moving into a new apartment, and transitioning my focus in life and career, my mind, body, and soul has been through the ringer.

I cannot deny that the LORD has been with me through it all. Even during the times when I have given up on Him, He has never given up on me. He patiently waited through it all, reminding me of His love and faithfulness. Though I am far from where I used to be and far from where I want to be, I know He still stands and calls and waits for me to come home.

The Divine Within Us

“We are slowed down light and sound waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music.”

The quote above is from the famous scientist, Albert Einstein. As many know, Einstein was a German physicist whose work completely revolutionized physics. He was also a Jew.

But right now, I want to ignore the fact that Einstein was a Jew with a built in belief in God due to his upbringing. I want to focus on the fact that he was a scientist.

The Faith of a Child

As I scroll through social media, I have found many posts that talk about the difference between religion and sonship.

It feel that it is important, as Christians, that we understand this difference.

Jesus understood that the way we view religion needed to change.

When out with His disciples, they were debating among themselves about who the greatest in the kingdom is. Jesus’ response was very unexpected. He set a child in the midst of them and told them, “Unless you…become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 18:3; NLT).

Of all the examples Jesus could have used, why did He choose to use a child to demonstrate greatness in the kingdom?

Let’s take a look.

Redefining Lent

Welcome to the 40 holiest days of the year!During this time of the Church year, liturgies work their way toward Easter, looking at the last few days of Jesus’ earthly life, culminating in the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

This is also the time of the year when many people, Catholic, Protestant, and non-affiliated, give something up. It is time for the annual Lenten fast.

“Preach My Gospel”

“Preach My Gospel”

This is what the voice told me.

I have been dealing with fear over being more open about my faith, largely because of the state our country is in and how much more risky it has become to be passionate about our beliefs.

While it is not an irrational fear, it is something that should not paralyze us with fear.
