Follow through ..

“But he sacrificed himself once and for all, summing up all the other sacrifices in this sacrifice of himself, the final solution of sin.” Hebrews 9:26 The Message

He is the final solution and the first step of everyday. Christ’s death summed up God’s absolute demands about every sin in your life. All of your patchworks are no longer needed. You’re free to live “all-out-for- God. That freedom is only found in Christ .. nowhere else. You can’t purchase your way into freedom .. you can’t do-good your way into God’s graces .. you can’t be good enough to
enjoy the freedom of the cross. The freedom of the cross involves believing .. accepting .. and living out what Christ’s life on the cross means for you today. It’s filled with hope .. GOD has your best interests at heart. The Cross was your worst. His Risen life is your relentless hope. You don’t stop at the Cross .. an old bald head preacher said recently. Following Christ is about “following-through. Jesus wants to follow-through in your life .. with His life. Do you believe this? If so .. your day will be continually marked with the Spirit’s power following through .. through you. He won’t let go …

“Through the Spirit, Christ offered himself as an unblemished sacrifice, freeing us from all those dead-end efforts to make ourselves respectable, so that we can live all out for God.” Hebrews 9:16 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
