The Principle of Replacement


For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,

Romans 8.2-3

My pastor spoke today about what he referred to as the principle of replacement: God’s righteousness replaces our sinful nature.

How I wish for God’s love to replace our hate in today’s world. None of us are perfect, so our love cannot be perfect. And this is why we need God’s love. Human love is often conditional and is, because of that, imperfect. But God’s love supersedes and has the power to make us perfect.

Lord, may Your love reign in our hearts, in our homes, and in our streets today and always. Amen.
