The Descending Escalator (Law) vs. The Ascending Escalator (Grace)



I loved this short video of Rob Rufus illustrating the difference between grace and law.   The quality on this clip is not that great, but the message sure is!  Just what I needed to hear today..

The kingdom of heaven is an ascending escalator!  Even when we fail He is still bringing us up, up, up!  His Life trumps all our sin, self-effort, struggle and falling.  All those things are just shadows of the old creation, which is death.  But we've been placed into the new creation, which is Life.  And Life trumps death every time!  We are carried up and away by His LIFE!   We are sustained and uplifted by the power of an indestructible life, by the power of the resurrection life of Christ Himself put within us.  So up we go!  Grace is just such good news, isn't it?

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.                                   Rom. 8:2

May you enjoy the ride in Him today!

                      With love,
