We can rejoice, too!

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God" Romans 5:1-2 KJV.

All because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us;
  • we have peace with God
  • we have access by faith
  • we glory in tribulations also
"And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement" Romans 5:11.

We joy, because through Jesus Christ, this grace of God and the gift of righteousness came also upon us, resulting in our justification.

"...we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand...."

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom grace is multiplied in our lives, to counter the profusion of sin, that, just as sin reigned in death, so also will grace reign, resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. God’s love is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us, to guarantee our salvation, to keep this grace alive and "reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 5:21.

Walk in newness of life!

"I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness." Romans 6:19
  • yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness,
  • yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God, Romans 6:13
His benefits to you is you become a part of him, to include holiness and everlasting life.

"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God" Romans 7:4.

What it means is, now you can really serve God; not in the old way, but in the new way, with all your heart and mind, you can now produce good fruit, that is, good deeds for God.

So you see how it is: the new life tells you to do right, Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord.

"So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you" Romans 8:8-11.

All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God; they are controlled by their new nature if they have the Spirit of God living in them. Those who follow after the Holy Spirit find themselves doing those things that please God.
  • they walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit,
  • they that are after the Spirit mind the things of the Spirit.

"...we glory in tribulations also..."

"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together" Romans 8:16-17

If we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

"And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body" Romans 8:23.

We Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a preview of future glory, yet we also groan to be released from pain and suffering. We, too, wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us- heavenly bodies that will never be sick again and will never die. But despite all our tribulations, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server.You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server.But listen to this before you do;"Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."" Luke 10:38-42.Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubled ab…

Your fellowship in the gospel

As we fellowship with each other as believers, remember that our fellowship is only in the gospel. We love the brotherhood with the affection of Jesus Christ only, nothing more.Apostle Paul says, "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God," Philippians 1:9-11.So, as you fellowship with other believers, always remember that your job as a Christian is to ensure the progress of others and joy of faith, and to defend the gospel. The Apostle says, "Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so...that you may stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." Philippians 1:27.Be like-minded; help each other, work together with one heart, be warm-h…

Be filled with all the fullness of God

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,Ephesians 1:3.Did you know, that He chose us in Christ, according to the good pleasure of His will, and made us accepted in the Beloved? And "predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself," Ephesians 1:5. Now because we’re sons, He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. You don’t find that anywhere my friend, except in Christ.Now, my prayer for you is that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you also the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, that you may understand the mystery of His will, the mystery of Christ, that He purposed in himself to gather together in one all things in Christ, He has put all things under His feet, both which are in heaven and which are on earth, and we ourselves also have our redemption through His blood. We were gentiles,…
