Inveigh (Romans 8:1-8)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “inveigh.” Whether someone is a Christ follower not I think that most would agree that Jesus went through some pretty to bottles times. Even for those who did not believe he was the Messiah, it seems that his demeanor and actions perforate him to be an innocent man. For those who are Christians, of course the story goes much deeper. The apostle Paul writes in Romans that those who believed in Jesus need not worry about ridicule from others. No one who believed in Jesus as the Messiah would face ultimate condemnation.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
~Rom 8:1-2

My question is: what are some of the things that bother you? When people talk bad about you how does it make you feel? I know that most of us get at least a little bit upset when others have a problem that concerns us. The cool thing about being a Christian is that we know that no matter how we are judged or by whom, the only opinion really matters is that of Jesus. And, we know that we are set free from sin and vindicated for all unrighteousness. So the next time someone inveighs, or rails against you, for any reason don't worry because you know you are accepted in Christ.

Praying for you,
