Three ideas are used to discuss faith in Christ as opposed to legalism – namely covenant, guardian and sons and daughters. Christians have a firm foundation based on the promises of God, the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
When God shows us we are destitute before Him we are blessed, but this is only a start. Jesus tells us we are blessed when our sin bothers us enough to change and we experience the joy of complete forgiveness. Sin is awful but God’s forgiveness in Jesus is too wonderful for words.
This is a challenging message for Christians. In light of God’s compassion for us are we willing to allow God to move us with compassion, overcome our prejudice and then look out for the opportunities to demonstrate His love. Compassion will transform the world around us.
