Happy Easter! We are made holy and righteous by His grace!
For the next little while, I’m going to be blogging about grace. But you don’t have to wait until the end of the series to hear my conclusions. I’ll tell you right now! When you become a part of God’s kingdom, you are holy and righteous because God says you are. You are His precious sons and daughters because that’s who He says you are.
The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:17-19
Live in grace. Live in grace every day. People around you will smell the aroma of Christ coming from you. It’s the smell of peace and happiness, and that comes from knowing you are His. You are in Him and He is in you. That is your identity!
He made you that way because He loves you.
God loves you! So don’t be afraid. See you Thursday.
