Word of the Day.... February 11, 2013

Justification by Faith
O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? 
Galatians 3:1-3

I really love this scripture because Paul puts it out there really plain. He asks the Galatians if someone has bewitched them.  He asks if they have gone crazy because they no longer have the crucified Christ in clear focus in their lives. 

He asks them if they got their new lives? by working your heads off to please God? Or was it by responding to God’s Message to you? Are you going to continue this craziness? For only crazy people would think they could complete by their own efforts what was begun by God. If you weren’t smart enough or strong enough to begin it, how do you suppose you could perfect it? Did you go through this whole painful learning process for nothing? It is not yet a total loss, but it certainly will be if you keep this up!

The message of salvation that was given to all of us from Jesus is simple.  He was crucified for our sin. He died on that cross for our sin.  Death could not hold Jesus He arose from the dead!!!  He is ALL we need to be saved!!!
I don’t know about you, but I just love how the Lord keeps everything so simple.  It is when we humans get involved and add things that we get confused and mess everything up.  This is all we have to remember:


 Any time someone tries to tell you something different just tell them that. By the way Jesus said it Himself on the cross "It Is Finished!" I hope that as you go out into the world today that you have a Simply Heavenly Day!!!  God bless you!!!:):)
