When God sent His son to die for us, it wasn’t to excuse sin. God loved us so much He did so, to save us from the pain and burden of sin. ‘Heaven went bankrupt’ to get us out of the pitfalls of the hardest parts of this life. We are saved! That’s something to rejoice in, But… We can’t use that to excuse us from what is right and what is good.
The cross is the reminder of our worth! Heaven gave everything; The fullness of love was poured into us in the hopes that it would be sufficient enough to turn us away from sin and choose Love. The cross is the reminder that YOU were worth it! It’s a statement to anything that’s ever hurt you, cheat you, consume you, or break you. A statement that God has conquered!
The cross doesn’t take the sin away. Believing that Jesus died for You doesn’t make the temptations to sin disappear. Every day tests our spirits, so it’s going to be a fight to turn away from something you know doesn’t sit right with you. However, turning away from sin is part of the sacrifice that is needed to be the best version of yourself!
God is so Real and He is Living. Living in your moment, right where you are now! Remember that.
God Bless! 🙏🏼
