Christ's Work of Grace Defines Your Life!

God gave us grace before time began, and Christ the Lamb was slain from the foundation of the world...so what does that tell us? 

It tells us some wonderful news:

Before we ever fell, God had already picked us up! 

Before we ever committed sin and became guilty, Christ already cleansed us and made us righteous! 

Before we ever got lost, He had already found us! 

That is His eternal reference to us - what Christ did and the grace He poured out on us through that act of love!!

Christ's finished work is the true center of our lives around which everything revolves. 

Everything that has happened to us in this time and space arena called mortal life is subordinate to what Christ did for us, for that stands before, beyond, and outside of time itself!

God's final word about you is Jesus and everything He did for you, everything He is for you!


God's final word about you is:

innocent, 

clean, 

pure, 

lovable, 

righteous, 

included, 

accepted, 

chosen, 

held! 

God's ultimate reference about you is His beloved child, and the cross proves it is so, for through it He showed we are so loved, so valuable to Him, that we are worth dying for....And through it He came and rescued His own from the clutches of the enemy and brought us home, all before time even began!
