Day 24: Living Like You’re Free – If I haven’t been clear by now, let me state it again: Jesus died and rose again, once and for all, so that you can be free from the power and penalty of sin and shame. And he, who began that good work in you, will carry it on to completion (Phil. 1:6). Jesus removed our sin and shame on the cross, but he didn’t walk away afterward, leaving us to fend for ourselves. We have, in Jesus, an Overcomer who overcame and who continually overcomes. He is our past, present, and future shame Overcomer. Now it’s time for us to start living like it.
Prayer: God, you are my Overcomer, and I want to live a life that exemplifies you. When shame rears its ugly head, give me your strength to knock it down. Amen.
