Today's Verse : 1 Corinthians 1:30-31


January 30, 2012

VERSE: are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from
God -- that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the
-- 1 Corinthians 1:30-31
Jesus is our righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Let's
unpack those church words. Righteousness -- the ability to stand
before God and be declared free from guilt. Holiness -- the
character and nature that reflect the glory and sanctity of heaven.
Redemption -- the gift of freedom bought at great expense.
Christians aren't perfect? Hmmm! We know this is true. But, because
of Jesus' loving sacrifice, we also know that in God's eyes we're
righteous, holy, and redeemed. That, dear friend of Jesus, is what
we call amazing grace!
How can I thank you, wise and merciful Father, for the gift of
Jesus? Your love in formulating the plan to send him, your
sacrifice in having him become mortal, your agony when your own
creations murdered him are too wonderful for understanding. But in
my heart I do know that you did these things because of your loving
grace and I want to thank you and praise you forever. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.
