Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the Author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the Throne of GOD. For consider Him that endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. (Heb 12:1-3)
Jesus Christ took our place, willingly and humbly paying the price for sIn we could not pay, and providing the only way of forgiveness and reconciliation with the Father, through His obedience and sacrifice. All who have trusted Him now live in Him the righteousness of Christ and are adopted into this great family of GOD, one with the Father, not because we are now divine, or will become so, but because He has made us heirs of the righteousness which is in Christ Jesus, a new creature in Christ, risen to walk in newness of life.
His sacrifice means we are forgiven to serve, blessed to be a blessing, empowered to encourage, equipped and enabled to engage others for Jesus Christ. We are to minister to those around us who are hurting and in need with the Word of reconciliation as GOD provides His power, direction, and abundance of grace and mercy. We are to love one another with the unfeigned love of the brethren, as He loved us, and disciple one another in His Word until we all come into the full measure of Him who is our Head. We are to witness unto Him who gave Himself for us, that others may know Him and the power of His resurrection, taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, and as we go, proclaiming the Good News of forgiveness and reconciliation with the Father to all who will hear that by repentance and faith they might receive eternal life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
