Good morning.

What we need most comes only through Jesus. When He became man, He left behind His divinity and took on the limitations of humanity, all for our benefit.

As a result, we are:

• Chosen: God chose us from the beginning to belong to Him (2 Thess. 2:13), even though we do not deserve His kindness.

• Redeemed: We are no longer held in bondage to sin, because Jesus paid the penalty we owed (1 Pet. 1:18-19).

• Justified:All of us have sinned, but in God’s eyes, followers of Christ are “not guilty.” (See Rom. 3:23, Rom. 3:28.)

• Reconciled: Sin put us at odds with God, but through Christ, our relationship with Him is restored (2 Cor. 5:18).

• Forgiven: God has forgiven all our past, present, and future sins (Heb. 10:10).

• Freed from condemnation:We could never have kept the Law perfectly. That’s why Jesus came to fulfill it. As a result, we can pursue holiness without fear of punishment when we fail (Rom. 8:1-2).

God sees us in thoese terms because He loves us. Let's together with Paul, let’s praise "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ."

(Ephesians 1:3)

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
