In Christ — What We Are Not!

Day 3228: Be thankful and make sure you look around realizing that ‘there but for the grace of God go I.’

Scripture: Therefore, there is no condemnation for me when I am in Christ Jesus! For the law of the Spirit of the life of Christ has set me free from the law of sin and of death. Romans 8:1,2

Thoughts/questions: Most of who we are in Christ are positives. Today’s is not as we focus on what we don’t have! We are NOT condemned. To condemn is ‘to declare guilty and to declare to be reprehensible, wrong, or evil usually after weighing evidence and without reservation.’ Wow, who would want to be guilty, reprehensible, wrong, or evil?And, for those who follow Christ, NONE of those apply to us! Definitely nice to avoid!

We just finished a season in the U.S. where we focus on being thankful for what we have. Today, we will be thankful for what we DON’T have!

Suggested Prayer: Thank You Lord for not condemning me even though I am truly guilty and compared to your holiness, I am often reprehensible, wrong and even evil. You have freed me and forgiven me, and I am forever thankful . . .
