You have been created in Christ Jesus for significant action. Believers, we have been created in Christ Jesus t»

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. (Ephesians 2:1-3)Paul here describes how his readers were prev»

For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. F»

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! Jesus meets us where we are, but he doesn’t leave us there. Can you imagine a fireman who broke through the walls of a burning house, found those trapped inside, but left them in the inferno? Can you imagine an open water rescue with the helicopter hovering above shining a spotlight on the drowning victims only to leave them in the w»

Luke 19:9-10 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Jesus did not come to earth to be hailed as a moral leader or establish a religion. He did not come to be an esteemed teacher or miracle worker. Jesus’ purpose is clearly stated in today’s passage—“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Zacchaeus»

7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God s»

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Paul had a “thorn in [his] flesh.” We don’t know what it was,»

Mark 10:22-23 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” The rich young man initiated the conversation. He came to Jesus with great urgency and asked, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” When the man explained that he had kept all the commandments, Jesus exposed his heart. “Sell all you have»

Mark 10:21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Legalism tells me it’s all about the show. It’s all about what I do and don’t do. Legalism zooms in on my hands, but ignores what’s going on in my heart. The rich young ruler assured Jesus that he had kept all the commands from the time he cou»
