Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

I have good news for you.  What was impossible for us to accomplish, God did!

For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful humanity to be a sin offering.

--Romans 8:3 TNIV

Really, the good news of our faith, the gospel, founds itself not in what WE do or did, but in what God did.  Humans proved unable to accomplish the honor code, the ethic, the rules of life--good and bad.  We ended defeated.  But the good news is that what we could not do, God did.
Now what do we do with such a great gift?  That's the essence of the rest of Romans.  How to live with the blessing of what God did?
