For most of my life, I tried to keep God’s law. I think everybody wants to avoid doing bad things. Most everybody.
I have known for a long time that as a human, I sin. I also knew that I cannot save myself. So I did trust in the work of Christ to save me, but I lived sin to sin.
In the past 2 years, I have come to a deeper understanding, that Christ already paid for my sins. I don’t have to live sin to sin. Every day I can walk deeper and deeper into Christ’s love.
I have everything I need to live a righteous life. There was a whole world of information God gave us in the life of Christ. I have always focused on the Cross, and that is important, but also important is the life of Christ which is a testament to how to live a good life.
I want to tap into this life now more than ever.
In Psalm 119:19 it says:
I am a stranger on earth;
do not hide Your commands from me.
This psalmist recognizes that God’s laws are good things and beneficial in living a meaningful life.
I do want to live a meaningful life.
