Ps Shaiju Thomas
To live a quality life on a daily basis one ought to know what is required of him/her and what should be omitted too. Imagine one minute your life without instructions and rules and regulations – your boss tells you do whatever you want, your teacher tells to study what you like, your doctor prescribes whatever he likes, the cop on the street gives permission to anything…the world will be a chaos.
Romans 8:2 of the Holy Bible points out to us that there are two kinds of laws – one that of physical realm and the other at the spiritual realm. The physical realm law points to the spiritual realm law. The law is only a pointer to the real or to the truth – Christ Jesus. The first verse of the same chapter says, “there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”. That means, the rule-book tells you when you have gone wrong and what you should have done but does not have the power to save a person from judgement.
The book – the Holy Bible, claims that all people are sinners and thus worthy of punishment, that is the law at the physical realm and pointing to the condition of our soul and heart. But then it goes on to tell us in John 3:16, that God loved us that he didn’t wanted to leave us in that condition. So He came down and died and rose again for us so that we may have life that defies the rule of the physical realm.
Thus, we are free from the condemnation of the law of physical realm because Christ Jesus The Lord of the law has set us free and has made us responsible for our lives that flows from His goodness.
This does not mean we can do whatever we want, but what it means is once we had no choice but now you and I have the choice, we are free from the weight of sin, we have a hope and we can decide.
If you have made the choice to follow Christ, may you continue to live life not bogged down by the weight of the world but in freedom that Christ gives. Invite him to your board meetings of life, office, school, family, etc…and see how He helps you to sail through the rough weather.
But if you didn’t have this opportunity, we encourage you to pray this prayer…dear Jesus, I need you this morning and every morning to be The Lord of my life. I am a sinner and have been condemned to death but this morning I want to surrender my life at your feet. I know you are the living God and I want to live in the freedom that you have promised us. I surrender my life, in Jesus Christ, my saviours name, I pray.
If you just made this prayer, we want to comment God’s blessings on you and are sire that God will give you victory today in your struggles. We also encourage you to get in touch with us to know more, we will be glad to help and guide you.
Blessed day, enjoy the freedom that the Christ your saviour has given.
