The Power of Grace//#LetYourLightShine Thursday Link-Up!

Monday. I wake up feeling good knowing "I am the righteousness of God in Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Tuesday. I wake up feeling good telling myself "I am the righteousness of God in Christ".
Wednesday.  I am tired. The work week is weighing down on me. I am playing back the sins I committed in my head. Trying to remember "I am the righteousness of God in Christ."
Thursday. I am asking myself "How am I the righteousness of God in Christ if I continually make mistakes and sin?"

I think this pattern happens to a lot of us. We may have something that reminds us of God's love for us and how no sin can come between us and our Savior because of what Christ did for us on the cross .(Hallelujah!!)

But as the week goes on, our reminder may fade as the world creeps in.

I am here to remind myself and you that you are still indeed, no matter what your sin, the righteousness of God in Christ. Nothing we do can separate us from the grace and love of God. (Romans 8:38) Jesus shows us grace each and everyday with new mercies for us.

The power of grace has overcome any sin.

If you sinned earlier this week or last night or this morning or even just a minute ago, Christ is still looking at your with love and grace. He is waiting for us to turn back to Him so He can make all of our paths straight again. What a wonderful Redeemer.

Knowing God's Grace can help us:
1) Have boldness to live in Christ. We don't have to shy away because our mistake and failures.
2) Peace for today.
3) Hope for tomorrow.

Grace is powerful. Remember, we have it everyday!

If you are like me and struggle with understanding the extent of God's grace sometimes, some of these things help me:
1) Going to church mid- week.
2)Bible studying with friends or alone.
3) Listening to sermons on grace (Joseph Prince has some good ones!)
4) Pray. Sometimes if I just pray and ask God to show me His grace in the midst of my struggles, it gives me an unspoken peace.
