Good morning all you blessed of God! God is so amazing and He loves us so much that He sent Jesus to the cross to pay our sin debt! That’s right a debt we owed He paid so that we could be fully restored to our original design!
Is there anything we can do to improve on His perfect and finished work of redemption? Absolutely not! Then why do we keep trying to finish what Jesus already finished? By self efforts that is, He gave us his Grace, removed the law, nailing all the requirement of the law to the cross (Colossians 2:14) and handing us the completed victory.
His plan for our success is so simple, that’s why its called the simple gospel, as a mater of fact Paul once was concerned that the Corinthians would complicate it that he said in 2 Cor 11:3 that he feared that …their minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. His simple plan is this, Mark 4:20 But these are the ones sown on good ground (good ground is simply grace ground) those who hear the word, accept (believe) it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred. Wow, how much simpler can we get, hear the gospel of grace, believe it and bear fruit! Believing in His finished work is the key.
According to Colossians 1:22 (Mirror Translation) He accomplished this in dying our death in a human body; he fully represented us in order to fully present us again in blameless innocence face to face with God; with NO sense of guilt, suspicion, regret or accusation; all charges against us are officially cancelled. Praise the Lord! Enjoy the victory Jesus obtained for YOU today!
