Jesus – Save Us from Ourselves!

Jesus – Save Us from Ourselves!

Jesus, save us from ourselvesThank God he sent his only son to save us from ourselves. Without Christ we are self-indulgent, self-righteous, self-conscious self-rulers that are only interested in self-preservation and self-promotion. And, let me tell you, that’s not life. That’s slavery. But, like I said. Thank God he sent Jesus to save us from ourselves. Otherwise we’d be not only stuck in the rut but also doomed for eternal slavery.

We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. (Romans 6:6, NLT)

When we have been crucified with Christ, we are no longer slaves to self-ruling, self-promotion, self-preservation, self-righteousness, self-indulgence. When we abide in Christ, we are free to live as God intended us to live.

When are free in Christ, we are free indeed. We are able to reclaim our true identity: God’s beloved. We are able to become what God created us to be. And there’s nothing better, folks. Nothing better.

 

Dear God,
Thank you for saving us from ourselves!
Thank you for offerings us life upon life!
Thank you for freeing us from the power of sin!
Thank you for claiming us yours.
Thank you for enabling us to become what you created us to be.
Never let us forget your amazing love.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen
