“For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.”
Ephesians 2:6-7 NLT
God picked us up from death and has given us new life. He picked us up out of the miry clay of sin and set us upon the Rock - Jesus Christ.
“He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.”
Psalms 40:2 NASB
We have, by grace, been taken from condemnation and eternal hell to forgiveness, acceptance, and union with Christ in heaven. Wow!! What a transformation!! All of this was done by Jesus Christ!!! We are now the prize possession of God. He displays us in the family portrait. If God had a refrigerator, our picture would be on it. He loves us that much. Too marvelous for words!!!!!!!
Are you united with God through Jesus Christ? If not, simply call on Him in repentance and ask Him to forgive you of your sin and invite Him into your life as Savior and Lord. He awaits your call.
