“Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.” Romans 4:7-8
Isn’t it wonderful to realize that God remembers our sin no more. It’s as if they never happened. The enemy will try to convince us that we really screwed up and aren’t worthy of God’s forgiveness. But Christ paid a huge price to remove those sins and they are gone.
“But also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness – for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.” Romans 4:24
We are righteous in Gods eyes. That is such an awesome feeling. We can come boldly before God in prayer. We aren’t perfect but he is perfecting us as we wait on him. He also is patient and in no hurry.
“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned-“. Romans 5:12
One little sin is all it took. We were all lost. From the day we were born we would do things wrong. We couldn’t really help it. I’m always saying and doing things that I know are wrong. Jesus died to take that away. What love!
“For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will also certainly be united in a resurrection like his.” Romans 6:5
For those who don’t believe there is anything after this life, this says it all. Jesus was raised from the dead. Right now he is with the father in heaven. If, we are united with him. Those who are not united with him, well they have cause to worry.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
We all have that dreadful disease. We can’t stop it. But Jesus came to do away with it. He is the cure. Believe in him. What an amazing gift.
“You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but in the realm of the spirit. If indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.” Romans 8:9
It is so exciting living in the realm of the Spirit. I see so much moving of God and miracles that just knock my socks off. He is the same God today as when Moses lead the Israelites. He’s just doing new stuff, but same God.
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26
I am glad that when I am just not sure how I should pray, the Spirit does. if I am unsure of God’s will for something, the Holy Spirit knows the mind of Christ. I have times during the day where I can just speak in tongues and feel better.
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us who can be against us?” Romans 9:31
If the one who made everything and everyone is on my side. Only he has the power to control anything. What can I lose? Who can come against me without his permission?
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 9:38-39
NOTHING! Nothing can or will separate us from God’s amazing love. That’s a promise I can always bank on.
“”After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own tree.” Romans 11:24
If Christ can save anyone he can bring someone back to himself who has fallen away. We are drawn by him. We cannot be saved unless he draws us.
