Bible Reading:

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.”

Psalm 32:1-2 (KJV)

THE MESSAGE

Christianity is sweet because there is no more frustration. Understand that the first benefit you must claim is the fact that God does not behold iniquity in you. It’s not that you don’t have it, but He doesn’t see it (Romans 4:6-8). He chooses to look at you through Jesus. If you do not once and for all settle the truth that the law has been done away with so that grace can kick in, you will remain a cheap victim in the hands of the devil. You will be a napius (a child) as Galatians 4 says.

Napius is a Greek word that means you are walking about in a napkin, which indicates that you are immature. Maturity is for those who understand grace. The devil has scored many points against the church all this time because we have many napius in the church. All these people have ever known is the law; the more laws they know, the more bound they become.

God desired to bless His children, the Israelites, but they demanded a law so He gave them the law. And when they got the law, they discovered that they couldn’t keep it and God couldn’t bless them. As a matter of fact, they broke the first commandment, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3), on the same day they received it by making the golden calf. This shows man’s inability to keep the law.

Isaiah 53 is basically a prophetic chapter about the finished work of Christ in our lives. In the chapter, the ancient prophet declares: “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1, KJV). The arm of God is the power, the anointing, and the glory of God. But the ability to experience all this is predicated on believing in what Jesus did for you. The power of God may be present, but if you fail to believe the report about what Jesus did, nothing will happen. This scripture indicates that it’s a matter of choice.
