“Fureeh” is good.An email came out a few days ago from our neighborhood email distribution. “Free Fridge. Email back if you want it.” I could not reply fast enough! I have never had an extra fridge. I have often seen them in other people’s homes, but not mine. And this was all the better! It was free! Did I say “fureeh?” Well, today we cleaned it up and plugged it in. I was overjoyed with this simple little gift that I didn’t have to pay for. I love a great deal but this was over the top!
Jesus has given us a great deal! I wonder if Jesus ever gets contemplative and asks his children “Grace anyone? It’s Fureeh! Get on board! I have plenty to go around and I want to give some to YOU! Matter of fact, beloved, I am willing to give you all you desire! No payment required because I have already paid for it. All you have to do is ask.” Do we ask? I wonder how many of us would be lined up in front of Neimans if they were giving away free clothes? Would we share this fantastic event with our friends? I just wonder!
Are we living in abundant grace? Are we joyfully dancing in our churches like King David? Are we experiencing unbridled freedom through Christ? Do our friends know there is something different about us? Or do we, instead, act like spoiled brats because our children are out of control? Not enough money at the end of the month? The hubby is getting on our nerves? The list goes on and on, right? “The old life is gone; a new life has begun.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Remember “ fureeh” is good! “Fureeh” is the best! Nothing can or will ever compare to the free gift of God’s unconditional grace.
“So Christ has truly set us free.”Galatians 5:1
