This last week at Calvary, we learned from Paul in Galatians 2:15-21 that the way we live this life in the flesh is to live in the knowledge that we are in Jesus. That God the Father sees us, his children, just as he sees Christ. It is a glorious truth that opens up joy-filled living.
Spurgeon (as always) said it better than me:
“Ah! believer, it is safer always for you to be led of the Spirit into gospel liberty than to wear legal fetters. Judge yourself at what Christ is rather than what you are. Satan will try to mar your peace by reminding you of your sinfulness and imperfections: you can only meet his accusations by faithfully adhering to the Gospel and refusing to wear the yoke of bondage.”
