The Bible is clear in that we receive all we need as a gift of grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus.
We are forgiven through His blood (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossians 1 v 14).
We are made righteous as a gift of grace through faith (2 Corinthians 5 v 21).
We have all spiritual blessings (Ephesians 1 v 3) and have all we need for life and godliness through knowledge of Him, His finished work and of grace (2 Peter 1 v3).
We receive by grace through faith, not through our own works, through law.
We can however receive a couple of things if we want to and try to live by law.
If we seem to be successful for a while (this will not last) this will lead to pride.
If we fail (which will always happen eventually) this will lead to condemnation.
So, try and live by law if you wish, it will always lead to either pride and condemnation or both.
Grace does not involve your works or your efforts, so there is no such thing as your success or your failure, so living by grace cannot result in pride or condemnation.
If there is any pride or condemnation in your life there must be some area of your life that you are letting law in.
Living by grace is not about your successes or your failures; it is all about the amazing success of Jesus.
Living by grace removes pride and condemnation form your life, and as it is dependent upon the performance of Jesus can only result in blessings.
So, I strongly suggest you live by grace and not law!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I live under grace and not under law and thank you that I can live my life free from pride and condemnation”.
Romans 6 v 14…..For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace
