We aren't lost, we're found..
We aren't hopeless, we're hopeful..
We aren't rejected, we're accepted..
We aren't on probation, we're secure..
We aren't lacking, we're full..
We aren't broken, we're whole..
We aren't sickly, we're vibrant..
We aren't weak, we're strong..
We're not bound, we're free..
We're not worthless, we're precious..
We're not rebuked, we're encouraged..
We're not losers, we're victorious..
We're not vulnerable, we're safe..
We're not unimportant, we're significant..
We're not unwanted, we're loved!
Because Jesus is not a weak God! Jesus is not an effective Savior!
Jesus is perfect! His work is perfect and what's more, it's complete!
He is full..
He is complete..
He is holy..
He is lovely..
He is victorious..
He is strong..
He is wholeness..
He is rich..
He is loving..
He is encouragement..
He is kindness..
He is security..
He is protection..
He is KING and reigning over all!
He took all the bad things plaguing us DOWN to death on the cross, buried them in the tomb, and they did NOT come out..
Then He rose up as the heir of the new creation, and sent the Holy Spirit to come down and dwell in us and fill us, so bringing ALL that He is down to live in us and be part of our nature and inheritance..
Our old self died with Him, our new self rose with Him to newness of life in God's kingdom, where LOVE and GRACE reign through Jesus Christ our Lord!!
He has gotten rid of all that we were and brought us into all that He is!
Hallelujah, what a Savior, Redeemer, and King..
