FEBRUARY 11 – SIMPLE

02/11               Romans 11:22

22 Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off. 

SIMPLE

This is a simple statement but powerful.  We believe in Jesus by faith and trust that He is faithful.  We don’t disbelieve in Jesus every time we sin in fact every time I sin the Holy Spirit convicts me of my sin and I confess my sin and live by faith.  I never stopped trusting Jesus even though I had sinned.  But if I do my own thing and doubt that Jesus could love me I will reap what I have sown in my heart-continued separation from Jesus.  My activities don’t make me right or wrong.  Trusting in Jesus puts me in a right position with the Lord.
