R.E.L.A.X. in Christ

June 25th, 2015

Sometimes as Christians we struggle with our identity in Christ. We forget we are saved, loved, accepted and made right with Christ. Some of us even feel we need to strive and work hard to receive approval from God. In these times I try to R.E.L.A.X.

R – Rest

Rest in the finished work of Christ. You don’t need to strive to be accepted by God. If you have accepted Christ. It is finished and decided upon. You are loved, cherished and accepted by God.

E – Examine

Examine areas of your life or situations that happen when you feel condemned, unworthy or not accepted by God. Know what makes you feel not right with God so you can overcome them.

L – Learn

Learn Scriptures that talk about who you are in Christ. Read and meditate on them daily. Memorise them and share them with others. Put them up in a prominent place in your house.

A – Apply

Apply the Scriptures to your life. When you feel condemned, unworthy and the need to strive for acceptance, stop and recite your Scriptures that tell you otherwise. Then continue what you were doing.

X – Christ

X is the Greek symbol for Christ. Trust in Him and what He has done in saving you, growing you and keeping you in the palm of His hand. Remember no-one can snatch you away from Him.

God Bless,
