Isn’t it overwhelming when you are reminded anew of all that our precious Saviour did for you.
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
It is YOU, Jesus Christ loves!
John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
It is YOU, Jesus Christ has chosen!
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
It is YOU, the Lord Jesus made alive!
Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
It is YOU, who God has forgiven for all your sins!
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
It is YOU, in whom Jesus Christ has begun a good work and will continue it to the end!
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
It is YOU, to whom Jesus Christ has given His peace!
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
It is YOU, the Lord Jesus has given fullness of joy!
John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
It is YOU, in whom Jesus sent the Comforter, to dwell!
John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
And after doing all of this and so much more for YOU, what is it that He asks of us in return?
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
