Unlike the folks in the Old Testament, we are not being punished for getting it wrong. Because Jesus paid the price for our sins — and set us FREE from God’s wrath. So why do we still hurt so much? And, no, you cannot use other people as your scapegoat. Here are a few possibilities:
- We will always reap whatever we sow.
- We try to get things our own way (through manipulation, etc.).
- We don’t understand that God has something better He wants to give us.
Let me be clear, Christ has set us free — not partially, but completely & wonderfully free! We must always cherish this truth & stubbornly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past. GALATIANS 5:1
