“Everything that we have — right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start — comes from God by way of Jesus Christ.” 1 Cor. 1:30 The Message
What happened on the Cross…?
Your life … right thinking and right living … was purchased on the Cross. The Just One paid for all of your bad thinking and wrong living — past-present-future. Your life … a clean slate and a fresh start … was exchanged on that Cross. The Kind One offered his life in exchange for your dirty slate and weary-worn re-starts. Just and Kind … He has covered everything in your life. The way of Jesus Christ for your life was a Cross. Everything of God that comes to you … comes through Jesus. Everything that Jesus wants to do in you is relational … connected to Him … connected to His grace in you … connected to others living in the same relationship of love and trust. The great gift in prayer is our being able to ask the Lord for help … a straight path … a clean slate … a fresh start … It only takes moment to reach out your hand … to open your heart … to become really intimate with Jesus. He already sees your everything. Your everything starts with Him.
“May the Just One set me straight, may the Kind One correct me … ” Psalm 141:4 The Message
