Grace, Love and Peace to each and everyone in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
For the last three week we have learnt about how we are saved.
We learnt that we are saved
1. Because of God’s rich mercy
2. Because of God’s great love
3. Because of God’s grace
Today we will learn what does God’s mercy, love and grace do to us
* Salvation ensures or gives confidence in our spirit that we receive God’s Mercy, Love and Grace
* Salvation ensures that we are eligible to enter heaven
* Salvation ensures that we are eligible to use the authority of God
* Salvation ensures that we can boldly enter the throne of Grace
Now this verse explains some more deeper insights.
We all believe that God raised Jesus from death.
This verse goes on to tell that we also were raised up with Jesus Christ.
I know this is not an easy aspect to comprehend but understand that when Jesus was raised from the death we also were raised from the death.
I think this is more deep.
We don’t tell we will be raised
We don’t tell we will be seated one day
It talks about while we were one earth we have a greater place
Jesus was raised up and so are we
Jesus is seated at the right hand of God and so are we seated in the heavens.
This verse talks about the authority and the position that we have as a born again believer.
13 When you were dead in your sins, you were not set free from the sinful things of the world. But God forgave your sins and gave you new life through Christ. 14 We had broken the Law many ways. Those sins were held against us by the Law. That Law had writings which said we were sinners. But now He has destroyed that writing by nailing it to the cross. 15 God took away the power of the leaders of this world and the powers of darkness. He showed them to the world. The battle was won over them through Christ.
