"..to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:6
The beauty of this collection lies within the powerful truth of His Word in light of our redemption. That "God proves his love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have been justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved from the wrath of God through Him." (Romans 5:8)
In Christ, the Father has "freely bestowed on us" His glorious grace; We have been "saved by grace, through faith" - this is not from ourselves but a gift (Ephesians 2:8-9). You are chosen, loved, forgiven, delivered, redeemed, set free, covered, made new - God's gift has changed everything. We have been adopted into the family of God and are seen just as Jesus is - fully accepted because of His blood and sacrifice.
In creating this collection, The Lord restored to me the joy of my salvation. He is taking me deeper still. I pray these pieces would bless you as you journey further into their verses and bring about change as you behold Him there. I pray their truths would dwell within you so deep within that it would cast out all the other sources and places we try to steal self-acceptance from, and instead; find great delight in warming ourselves at the fire of our standing in Christ Jesus.
You are His beloved.
In His grace, Michelle
