Things Not Seen

Now
faith
is the
assurance
of things we hope for,
the evidence of things not seen;
blessed are those who have not seen and yet still believe.
So stand firm in the faith, dear saints, and break free from the world’s grip;
stay rooted in His love, praising Him with every breath.
Keep watch that none among you faints – take heed so as not to slip,
clinging to and trusting in the One who conquered death.
Proof is found in the love He has poured into our hearts!
With confidence in things to come,
we rejoice always
in the peace
we have
in
Christ.

Romans 3:21-26  But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for  all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

He First Loved Us

We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Love
will
wrap you
in His arms
with power and grace;
such an indescribable peace
this antidote for your troubled heart
will embrace you in His perfect care
with love that cannot be torn apart;
a lasting friendship beyond compare
and peace beyond understanding;
yet He waits for you
to choose Him
solely
by
faith.

No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39 (NLT)
