Matthew 11:30 “For MY yoke is easy and MY burden is light.”
Are you struggling to raise Glory’s banner on high? Has the lie of “Comparison paths” chained your steps?
Were you told that CHRIST’s love is just made up of “points” where you must “earn HIS favor”? What blasphemous texts!
Dearly Loved of the LORD! Does your soul bear such burdens?
Who convinced you to languish, imprisoned with guilt?
What twisting of Scripture was nailed to your conscience as though Calvary’s cross — insufficiently “built”?
Rather! Cling to HIS heart as HE
lifts every debt
which was errantly forged in your flesh…without Faith!
Then! With Certainty rising, take hold of HIS hands
which were pierced with our nails to purchase our names!
So by Grace ARE we saved and that not of ourselves!
None can boast; ‘tis a weightless gift given in Love! Therefore see the race set just before you and run;
chasing solely the ONE WHO bought us through HIS Blood!
As HIServants soaring free from all sin and shame because of CHRIST and CHRIST alone,
Devotional: Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take MY yoke upon you and learn from ME, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For MY yoke is easy and MY burden is light.”
Weightlessness Won! The burdens of sin’s guilt and shame has HE lifted solely by HIS power and through HIS sacrifice, burial and resurrection from Calvary’s Tomb!
1 Peter 2:24 “WHO HIS own self bare our sins in HIS own body on the Cross, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed!”
This is Joy! To know our sins are forgiven, our debts are paid, and the “body of this death” that Paul spoke of in Romans 7:24, we have been freed from its clutches!
“Oh wretched man that I am, who will set me free from this body of death?!”
I’ve spoken of this image a few times previously in poems and in the Crossroads Trilogy.
In Roman times a murderer found guilty was condemned to the “Body of Death”. The victim of the murder was strapped to the back of the condemned.
As the body started to decompose, DEATH would the overcome the body of the murderer. This would cause a slow and painful death, and there was no hope of rescue.
BUT GOD! HE took each and all of our debts and put the individual “body of death” that was to remain attached to us…upon CHRIST! Love rescued me! HIS love rescued you!
Don’t miss this!
Hebrews 10:1 “For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.
Hebrews 10:2 “Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins?”
Grace, Grace! Unearned, undeserved, wholly applies forever by CHRIST! Grace!
Isaiah 53:6 “We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and the LORD has punished him for the iniquity of us all!” Doesn’t your heart also shout how grateful you are for HIS compassionate sovereignty?!
But read also the verse beforehand!
Isaiah 53:5 “But HE was pierced for our transgressions, HE was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on HIM, and by HIS wounds we are healed!”
Once more! “JESUS paid it all, all to HIM I owe…!!” Daily pass along HIS gift of Weightlessness to the Lost and as a reminder to those who have fallen back into Law!
So let us press forward in zealous anticipation of seeing CHRIST!
Hebrews 10:37. “Because in a very short time, he who is coming will come and will not delay!
Amen and amen!
