Bought with a Great Price!

You have been bought with a price. You have been redeemed. You have been saved. "If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. " Romans 10:9 "He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel." 2 Timothy 1:9-10 You have been given eternity. "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” Matthew 26:28-29 You have had your sins erased. You have been set free. You are able to pray to the GOD the one and only GOD who created the heavens and the Earth! You are able to live without guilt. You have the Lord of Heaven's Armies standing in front of you defending and protecting you!He picks you up and washes your wounds, washes your sins away. "I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put sandals of fine leather on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments." Ezekiel 16:9-10 He carries you in His hands. He is always there! "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
He is the only one who can fill that empty spot in your heart. He is the only one who knows you better than you know yourself. "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5 He is God Almighty and He died for you! He not only took the physical punishment on the cross, but He took the world's sin on Him. He took every sin! He took all the sins you committed last week and all the sins you will commit next week and the next. Jesus Christ had every sin on Him at one time. He had all guilt so that you would not have to feel it. He took all punishment so you wouldn't have to! For the very first time in His life He had sin and guilt in Him. For the very first time in His life He was without God! Imagine being with God and part of God in God and full of God all the time! How amazing? How magnificent to always be with Him? " In the beginning was the Word (Jesus) , and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. John 1:1-3 And then, one day have all the sins of the Earth in you and be as far from God as is possible! That is what Jesus did for you and me! He gave us peace without guilt because of His saving grace. He gave us free access to a personal relationship with God through grace. He gave us the Holy Spirit that shows us right from wrong and opens our eyes to His Word. He gave us life, true eternal life with Him in Heaven! "Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:19-25 Praise His Holy name, Lord of lords, Prince of Peace, the Great I AM! Live like you have a Savior because you do! He lives today, tomorrow , and forever!
To GOD alone be the glory!
