Good morning Jesus Good morning Lord, I know You come from heaven above, the Holy Spirit teach us truth, Good morning Jesus Good morning Lord. Glory Glory Glory Lord, we give you glory Lord 2x You are the Mighty God.
Blessed Redeemer we thank You for today, we thank You for Your Mighty works in our lives and situation. We are grateful for Faithfulness and grace abound unto us for every good work. Thank You Father for watching over us and fighting all our secret battles. Thank You Lord for the salvation of our souls from the pit of hell. Blessed be thy Holy Name forever and ever.
Beloved, blessed is our God who art in heaven, Who daily load us with benefits; Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth Thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satifieth thy desire with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle (Ps 103:2-5).
Our God is awesome and greatly to be feared. Beloved, I think we should be rejoiced in the Lord our Saviour if we found ourselves to be counted among those called by God either by election or selection.
Do you know that there is no difference between the elect and the non-elect, they are clay of the “the same lump, which also agree with Eph 2:3. Though God does not make a difference in the respective destinations to which He assigned assigns His creature for one vessel is made “unto honour and another unto dishonor” some are “vessels of wrath fitted to destruction,” others are vessels of mercy, which He had afore prepared unto glory.” However, the chooser here is God Himself (Jn 15:16). And you are chosen to be among the elect. Shout alleluia!
Our Salvation is by the “sanctification of the Holy Spirit (2Thess 2:13) and the belief of the truth.” Is not true that because God has chosen a certain one to salvation that he will saved willy-nilly, whether he believes or not; nowhere do the scripture so represent it.
Having been chosen unto salvation is a profound cause for fervent praise as expressed by the apostles- we are bound to give thanks always to God for you… because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation. So instead of shirking back in horror from the doctrine of predestination, the believer, when he sees this blessed truth as it is unfolded in the Word, discovers a ground for gratitude and thanksgiving such as nothing else, save the unspeakable gift of the Redeemer Himself.
Is grace that is speaking in our lives that we are save not of works (2 Tim 1:9) we also believe through grace (Acts 18:27). Beloved, may this purging in our study text be effective in your life and not in vain in Jesus Name.
For there is no condemnation for them that are in Christ Jesus. Beloved, the emphasis is not for all but for “them that are Christ Jesus.” Are you in Christ Jesus? Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned but anyone who does not is already condemned because he has not believed in the Name of the One and Only Son of God (Jn 3:18).
Make sure you give your life to Jesus to inherit this promise as it was Jesus mandated to do His Father’s will not His own. Also His death is for those that His Father has given Him not for all (Jn 6:44; Eph 1:4, 5; Jn 10:16). So stop basking in sin and be waiting for salvation that will save you at the point of death like the one Christ saved on the cross. That thinking is not only erroneous but very risky because there will not other chance to make the correction and the result will be everlasting fire with gnashing of teeth (Matt 25:41; Matt 5:26).
“And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.” Zech. 13:9
Grace transmutes us into precious metal, and then the fire and the furnace follow as a necessary consequence. Do we start at this? Would we sooner be accounted worthless, that we might enjoy repose, like the stones of the field? This would be to choose the viler part: like Esau, to take the pottage, and give up the covenant portion. No, Lord; we will gladly be cast into the furnace rather than be cast out from thy presence!
The fire only refines, it does not destroy. We are to be brought through the fire, not left in it. The Lord values His people as silver, and therefore He is at pains to purge away their dross. If we are wise, we shall rather welcome the refining process than decline it. Our prayer will be that our alloy may be taken from us rather than that we should be withdrawn from the crucible.
O Lord, thou triest us indeed! We are ready to melt under the fierceness of the flame. Still, this is thy way, and thy way is the best. Sustain us under the trial and complete the process of our purifying, and we will be thine for ever and ever.
For indeed there is no condemnation that are rooted in Christ Jesus. Christ paid in full and therefore God requires no payment from you henceforth. Dip yourselves into this:
“There is therefore now no condemnation.” Romans 8:1
Come, my soul, think thou of this. Believing in Jesus, thou art actually and effectually cleared from guilt; thou art led out of thy prison. Thou art no more in fetters as a bond-slave; thou art delivered now from the bondage of the law; thou art freed from sin, and canst walk at large as a freeman, thy Saviour’s blood has procured thy full discharge.
Thou hast a right now to approach thy Father’s throne. No flames of vengeance are there to scare thee now; no fiery sword; justice cannot smite the innocent. Thy disabilities are taken away: thou wast once unable to see thy Father’s face: thou canst see it now. Thou couldst not speak with Him: but now thou hast access with boldness. Once there was a fear of hell upon thee; but thou hast no fear of it now, for how can there be punishment for the guiltless?
He who believeth is not condemned, and cannot be punished. And more than all, the privileges thou mightst have enjoyed, if thou hadst never sinned, are thine now thou art justified. All the blessings which thou wouldst have had if thou hadst kept the law, and more, are thine, because Christ has kept it for thee. All the love and the acceptance which perfect obedience could have obtained of God, belong to thee, because Christ was perfectly obedient on thy behalf, and hath imputed all His merits to thy account, that thou mightst be exceeding rich through Him, who for thy sake became exceeding poor.
Oh! how great the debt of love and gratitude thou owest to thy Saviour!
“A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear with Thy righteousness on,
My person and offerings to bring:
The terrors of law and of God,
With me can have nothing to do;
My Saviour’s obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view.”
Beloved, this great love must be in vain but will be beneficial to you in Jesus Name. I pray that you will be willing under the Divine power of God and be a partaker of God’s love to mankind (Ps 110:3; Jn 3:16).
Remain blessed in the Lord.
