Ephesians 1:4 in The Passion Translation states ..."And He chose us to be His very own, joining us to Himself even before He laid the foundation of the universe! Because of His great love, He ordained us, so we would be seen as holy in His eyes with an unstained innocence." God found us in Christ before He lost us in Adam! When you know who you are by having an intimate love relationship with God, you have nothing to fear! Our part is to discover who we really are... which are sons and walking in the freedom of that glory! If our thinking does not line up with His, we need to have our thinking renewed. He doesn't want us to learn to love...He wants us to become love! As mature sons we will have an internal desire to become sons who are just like our loving Dad! Amen.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
