Just a reminder to myself of what is THE most important thing.
What is eternal…
What I should remember to be more thankful for…
Why even in ALL circumstances, including this one, I should be rejoicing, because the most important problem I’ll ever have, the one that overrides all others, including this one, has been taken care of, put aside through the blood of Jesus. I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED.
‘You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, although for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.’ Romans 5: 6-11
This is beautiful. Just beautiful.
Selah- Before the throne of God above
‘But now a righteousness form God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.’ Romans 3: 21-24
My name is graven on his hands, my name is written on His heart!
Because the sinless Saviour died, my sinful soul is counted free..For God the just is satisfied to look on him and pardon me
One with Himself I cannot die! My soul is purchased by His blood, my life is hid with Christ on high, with Christ my Saviour and my God.
I could just keep writing lines and verses that are speaking to me today…thank you Jesus…this reminder was well needed today.
