Romans 8:1-2 – With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is solved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
Everyone needs a reminder that they are well and truly free. I have a nasty habit of always thinking and stressing about what’s next. I think so much about what’s coming up next that I never enjoy the right now. I’m making it my new daily mission to enjoy the moment.
Jesus Christ didn’t die for us and rise again, so that we could have eternity with him and still be worried about tomorrow! What He did for us is done, for once and for all. The low-lying black cloud that should be looming over us, is gone. We are free for eternity and we should enjoy every second of it here on Earth, not just in Heaven.
Walk through your day today knowing and fully believing that you are free thanks to Jesus. Don’t worry about what tomorrow holds. Don’t stress about the rest of your day and everything that still needs to be done. Before you know it, the day will be over and you’ll look back and wonder why you didn’t enjoy it.
Take the weight off of your shoulder because it doesn’t deserve to be there. As a believer, lover and follower of Jesus Christ, you have been set free so enjoy it.
