Good morning everyone. Monday night service was exciting, our lives are being forever changed by the Good News.
We have journeyed deeper into the fact that we are completely forgiven of all sins. Now with the problem of sin dealt with, we are now positioned to receive every blessing.
Some of the promises given to us in Isaiah 54 where He tells us: “… So I have sworn that I will not be angry with you.” God will never be angry with you, because Jesus absorbed all Gods anger in His body at the cross for us. He continues: “…And my covenant of peace shall not be removed.” And “in righteousness you shall be established.” God promised to establish us in righteousness, which means He establishes us in an eternal right standing with Him. Under the Old Covenant, one had to establish one’s own righteousness through obedience to the law. Under the New Covenant, we are established in righteousness through Jesus’ perfect obedience on our behalf. Wow, that is breathtaking! These three promises from Isaiah 54 show us just how complete the plan of salvation through Jesus is at restoring our innocence. And if you are forever innocent/forgiven then that makes you innocent before God! He has made ALL things new in Him! In Hebrews 8:12 He says “For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins NO MORE.”
Let us not forget Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” When you accepted the Lord, you were were placed in Christ, so this is for you! Don’t condemn yourself for you are in Christ and innocent because of Jesus your beautiful savior. Do not call unclean, what God has called clean (Acts 10).
Because of the cross, God is for you. Not against you. Romans 8:32 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things. This is amazing!
God can never be angry with you, condemn you, or count you sins against you in any way, because He is a faithful God, faithful to His Covenant in Christ!
Now, receive His super abundance of Grace, and free gift of righteousness, and go reign in life today!
