can you guess the word?

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God…”  Ephesians 2:8

Propped on my keyboard was an index card with the following information:  adj. – protected from diseased naturally or by vaccination – producing immunity, protected, guarded, safe – free; exempt.  What kind of message was this?  Was I suppose to guess the word?  I know it, do you?

As a Christian, we can claim all the benefits above in the name of Jesus Christ.  We are protected from death by being vaccinated from sin in the love, grace and mercy provided us by God. By belonging to Him, He protects, guards and keeps us safe from others and ourselves… we are free and exempt from sin thanks to Jesus.

The back of the card identified the word as “immune”, my heart identified it as  “Christ”.  What do you think?

…you have been set FREE from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.  For the wages of sin is death, but the GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 6:22-23 Thank you, God!!

Have a thank-filled day!
