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.

The gospel of Christ!

The gospel of God, is that which pertains to His Son Jesus Christ, through him we have received grace and apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith to all.

Our service is rendered to God, whom we serve by our spirits telling the good news about his Son.

Preaching the gospel is all manner of witnessing and imparting spiritual gifts on God’s people, the believers, the called of Jesus Christ, who are called to be saints. That method of believing is called faith, and mutual faith when we together believe.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith" Romans 1:16-17.

The gospel of God is that which concerns His Son. God can be known only through the gospel of Christ, and that which may be known of God has now been made manifest in us; for God r…

Partakers of Christ's sufferings!

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy" 1 Peter 4:12-13

It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian, instead it is a privilege, folks. For "if ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye ; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified" 1 Peter 4:14.

Suffer according to God's will, not "as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters" 1 Peter 4:15.  But do what is right folks, and trust yourself to God who made you, for he will never fail you.

"The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: …

Your kingdom come!

One of the disciples said to Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray," and he said, "When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth" Luke 11:2.

"...Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven..." You find this in the King James Version, some other translations don’t have this, and you can understand why from scripture.

After resurrection the disciples came together and asked Jesus "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" Acts 1:6-8.

The Holy Ghost came to give us who believe an experience of "things pertaining to the ki…
