Grace for you today !
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!
“Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.” Psalms 51:14 NKJV
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
Romans 8:1 NKJV
The verses above are comparative & yet contrasting! The Psalmist in his agony, cries for deliverance from guilt so that he can sing praises of God’s righteousness. Seems logical.
However, Apostle Paul says that because Jesus has made you righteous by His blood, there is therefore now no condemnation. This seems too good to be true & makes a whole world of difference ! Hallelujah!!
We are under the New covenant of Grace where God has already finished the work of deliverance. It only takes our application. The Old covenant of Law left man either helpless or desperately needing help, just like the man at the Pool of Bethesda who waited for 38 years without any remedy.
What is the application on my part then ?
Walk according to the Spirit. Describing it in simple terms , it’s speaking in Tongues which was the sign given on the day of Pentecost ( Acts 2) that helps walk in the Spirit.
*Speaking in tongues destroys the power of guilt *. You may say , “pastor , I am free from guilt . I haven’t done anything wrong.” You may be right . Yet , if you speak in tongues , you can be helping someone who is suffering from acute guilt & it’s consequences. Amen 🙏
