"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Romans 5:1-2
From suffering comes joy! From pain comes peace! From sadness comes love!
I know you may be wondering if I have my wits about me? I’m not writing this just because God’s Word tells us these truths, I’m sharing with you the truth that our Heavenly Father has made aware to me throughout this past year. As a child of the King through the redemption I’ve claimed by the shed blood of Jesus Christ for my sin, I am to live my life “completely for Him–nothing held back”.
Today’s Friday’s Favorite is the last one for 2012.
It is my Christmas gift to you and I pray you KNOW the reality of this song’s message in your own personal life~~ if not, “ask the Father in the name of Jesus” and I guarantee He will show you the Way!
Colossians 1:13-22 “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight–“
Praise you dear Father for your perfect love and forgiveness to us who have claimed Jesus Christ as our Savior. Living each day as a new beginning, Jesus is not just Savior, but Lord and Master of our lives.
This beautiful song is where I am today in my life. I pray that it brings you closer to Him.
