Are You Free?

Sometimes it can be hard trying to measure up to other people’s expectations. What about measuring up to God’s expectations? Several hundred years ago, during the 16th Century, a monk by the name of Martin Luther found this weight of expectation too much to carry. Try as he might, he felt that he could not measure up to God’s lofty standards. This left him feeling very much afraid of God.

Then one day God revealed an amazing truth to Luther. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace, through faith in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:23). This wonderful truth is the gospel in a nutshell. God loves us and has given us His Son to pay the price for our sin. God’s expectation is simply that we believe and accept His gift of grace.
