The Art of Celebration

Blame.
Shame.
Fear.
Guilt.
Condemnation.

They do not define you.
They do not control you.
They are not your identity.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
-Matthew 11:28-30

Those are the words of Jesus.

Reject shame.
Reject fear.
Reject guilt.
Reject Condemnation.

you are free. you are free. you are free.

JESUS IS YOUR IDENTITY. CLING TO HIM. PRESS HARD INTO JESUS.

never forget…

“…we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
-Hebrews 4:14-16

That is our Jesus.
Hold Fast.
He knows.
He sympathizes.
Be confident.
Draw near to Jesus.
He will give you Mercy and Grace and rest for your soul.

“This is the art of celebration, Knowing we are free from Condemnation. O, praise the one, praise the one, who made an end to all my sin.”
