“It’s in Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this Message of your salvation), found yourselves home free — signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit.” Ephesians 1:13 The Message

What does home-free living look like…?

You … Jesus … a Cross … an Empty grave … Trust … Home-Free. You have believed a Message about Jesus. You haven’t been called to compromise or water it down. It is a home free — signed — sealed — and delivered way of life. You are supposed to look different. You are supposed to act different. You are supposed to be different. You don’t have try to live the christian life any longer. The Christian life is Christ living through you. He’s delivered you and filled your life … your mind … and your heart with His Spirit. And He wants you to live life — Christ-approved! Are you walking free today? Free in the life of Jesus inside of you? Free to serve the world you live in as a “priest” who brings Jesus to others and others to Jesus? You don’t have to make this complicated today. Your new life only makes sense in Christ. Whatever you do today … Wherever you go today … Whoever you serve today will only make sense in Christ. It only takes a moment to offer yourself to the Only One who can fill you with life-freeing approval.

“Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.” 1 Peter 2:5 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
