‘so that, having been justified by His grace, we may become heirs with the hope of eternal life.’ Titus 3:7

Mornin’, PrayerWarrior!
Prayer brings us to grace.
Often, I look around and see people, like me, who have made mistakes in their lives, and continue to wear the costume of the mistake. Even though, they have asked for and received forgiveness, they continue sporting their grubbies:
I am addicted.
I am an alcoholic.
I am a cheat.
I am a thief.
I am an adulteress.
I am a porn addict.
I am a liar.
I read a book where a form of baptism was practiced that probably wouldn’t fly here in ole dodge. It seems the one about to go under stripped naked as the day they were born to be plunged under the water. On the shore was the clothes of their old life – those that marked their life status. When they dried off, those old duds were replaced with all new clean ones – a sign they were a new Christian, clothed with the love and forgiveness of Christ.
Yes, grace gives us new clothes to wear.
Instead of living out the rest of your days “labeled” with a sin that marked your past, SweetOne, lose the old clothes. Simply refer to yourself as a “sinner saved by grace”.
