My religious acts are useless.
My past is forgotten.
My future is glorious.
The only thing that matters is my faith in Christ expressed through love.
My faith is knowing Jesus died for my sins therefore I am completely forgiven and righteous (right with God). In spite of my past, regardless to today’s mistake, despite tomorrow’s troubles I am righteous. Because of that righteousness, I can love the unlovable. I can forgive the unrepentant. I am moved by compassion to pray for the sick and set the oppressed free! This is my faith being expressed through love.
“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”
Galatians 5:6 NIV
