Cheer Up

Missing the mark is not fun, especially when you’re trying to live your life for Christ. At times, it can get you down and depressed. It’s common to feel that way, but I encourage you not to stay down in the dumps. The law was given to man to show us what was wrong and also to show us that we needed a Savior/Grace (Galatians 2:21). God knew we wouldn’t be able to keep all of the law; that is why He sent His Son to pay the ultimate price of sin (i.e. missing the mark). Since the big debt of sin has been paid in full, this is what Paul tells us:

So, now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And, because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. The Law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So, God did what the law could not do. He sent His own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And, in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving His Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit (Romans 8:1-4 NLT).

In other words, when you sin or mess up, don’t put yourself down (NO CONDEMNATION). Jesus has already paid the price for all your sins – past, present, and future. Instead, take joy in the fact that your Savior has covered your tab. **G.I.G.**
