As Christians, let us consider these thoughts about our Savior this week………………
To whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Jesus is our hope. The hope of heaven, the hope of glory, and the hope of resurrection all rest in the finished work of Jesus upon the cross. He is our only hope and our lasting hope. Through Christ, our hope is steadfast, sure, and forever secure. Jesus is our only lasting hope.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
Jesus is our strength. Paul commands Believers to be strong in the Lord and in His power. Jesus gives us the strength we need to serve Him, obey Him, and live our lives for His glory. The Lord strengthens us in all times, seasons, and circumstances. Christ fortifies His people forever by His power and might. Jesus is our ultimate strength.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.
Jesus is our redemption. He has set us free from the bondage of sin by the shedding His blood as our sacrifice. Jesus was condemned that we might be released. Through His marvelous grace, our sins are forgiven and we are given new life. Jesus is the redemption for all who will believe.
Thanks be to God for His mighty works! Let us make every effort to live in light of these truths.
