More thought on yesterday’s post –

“When God forgives us for violating His design, He pours His life into us; and that restores our capacity to connect, first with Him, then with others. He makes us alive with the actual life of Christ. The energy with which Jesus heard and obeyed the Father, the impulses behind everything He did – His tenderness with the lame man, His indignation with the moneychangers, His patience with Philip, His red-hot scorn for the Pharisees, His love for children, His resolve to endure injustice without complaint – are in us. The impulses that energized Jesus’ life on earth are actually in us. That’s part of what it means to be alive in Christ.” – Larry Crabb

What he said.

This means that God is incapable of sin. God’s impeccability is closely tied to His holiness and as they all do, plays a part in each of His characteristics. The implications of this attribute are huge for us. The peace we can rest in knowing that when bad things happen to us they’re not from God is enormously comforting and helps us understand the freedom God intends for us. He’s not up there waiting to smite us when we make the wrong move. He doesn’t react out of anger towards us ever and He doesn’t want us to live our lives in fear.
