"..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)
Through Jesus Christ, we have been: spared from the wrath of God, delivered from our bondage, no longer a slave but a child, secure from all condemnation, given a new identity, made a new creation, have the victory in Jesus.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves - it is a gift from God." (Eph. 2:8-9)
God's gift has changed everything. We are welcomed into the family of God as Jesus is - fully accepted in the Beloved.
In creating this collection, The Lord restored to me the joy of my salvation. He is taking me deeper still. I pray that these pieces would bless you as you journey further into their verses and bring change as you behold Him there. My hope is that their truths would dwell so deep within that is would cast out all the other sources we try to steal self-acceptance from, and instead find great delight in warming ourselves at the fire of our standing in Christ.
