Thankful Exultation

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also EXULT in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.       Romans 5:8‭-‬11 NASB

Exult: to show or feel a lively or triumphant joy; rejoice exceedingly; be highly elated or jubilant:

knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.     Romans 6:6‭-‬7 NASB

So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.          John 8:36 NASB

🌹We have much to be thankful and joyous over if we have experienced the saving grace of Jesus Christ. May your hearts be thankful, full of triumphant joy, jubilant as you celebrate the wonderful gift of salvation that comes only through Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God.

Seeing is Believing?

“Let this Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!” Those who were crucified with Him were also insulting Him.  Mark 15:32 NASB

“He saved others; He cannot save Himself. He is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in Him.    Matthew 27:42 NASB

Isn’t it said that “Seeing is believing”? I’ll believe it when I see it.

Are people any different today?

Jesus’ ministry lasted 3 years and in all that time He revealed Himself. Do you think that His coming down from the cross would have changed their minds? It is by faith that we are saved through God’s grace.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1 NASB

for we walk by faith, not by sight       2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB

🌹 How about you? How is your faith?

Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” John 11:40 NASB
