Look What God Has Done!

Can you believe it? God points to us as examples of His grace and kindness! That’s what Ephesians 2:6-7 says: “For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.” (NLT) Maybe He says something like this:

“Angels, Principalities, Powers! Look at __. See all I, God, have done for them—forgiving, reshaping, renewing. See what they were and what they are now in Christ Jesus. And look at My light shining through them to others. Notice how I have planted a flower garden in their heart, taking toxic memories and redeeming them to promote spiritual growth.”

When we get discouraged, let’s remember what God has already done and choose gratitude and trust instead of discouragement.

Link to “Why Crucifixion?” by Pastor Tom Hilpert

This is an excellent sermon by Pastor Tom. http://revth.wordpress.com/2014/04/18/why-crucifixion/
I think his closing remarks are powerful: He says that God’s grace is free to us, but it wasn’t free to God. He compared it to a diamond engagement ring being free to the girl who receives it, but it still costs a lot. And when a girl accepts an engagement ring, she’s accepting the marriage proposal. She’s entering a new relationship. Likewise, accepting God’s grace means giving your life to Jesus, committing to Him forever and entering a growing relationship with Him.
