For all of us of mankind have done wrong against God’s statutes and authority being justified clean by His grace through the death of Jesus on the cross.

As humans we all sin and fall away from God and his magnificence of lis love and faithfulness. We turn our hearts against him even when we are believers and followers. For God knew after he created mankind that they were sinners and so this was why he knew to save us all…me and you… he had to sacrifice his only son for each and everyone of us so that we make be saved of all our sins m, as he knew even as followers and after Christ’s death temptation and sin would still be in our lives. So Jesus sacrificed himself by the commandment of his father to pay in full our short comings and wrong doings. By his sacrifice of himself and the resurrection of his life after death on that cross that he has been given grounds for making us clean by grace in Christ though he asks for a intimate relationship with him and for us as God’s children to ask repentance for the events of our sins we have made. He wants is to be faithful with him and love him even though we are still sinners. He promises to not leave or abandon us or make us orphans because of the wrongs we have done against him and to him knowing before we do that we would do wrongs of all magnitudes. God knew us before we were even born and knew ourselves and he did nothing but given us perfect love and still remains loving to us through all we do. He promises he will always do what he wants to do to only give you the best for us. He wants us to trust him and not fear him as he is our protection and faith. He will not falter against us as we do him, and he knew we would which is why Christ had to pay ransom for our lives. A pastor once said that the story of the resurrection is always looked and talked about it being a story about his life… yes that is true however it’s also a story about me and you because had Christ not died upon the cross to save all mankind from our sins we would have suffered and perished and died in sever punishment for our own sinfulness we continue to do so the days of his death and resurrection was about you, about me about us. Had we not sinned than no ransom payment would have to have been made in the first place however we do live in sinful nature and God had to find someway for us to be saved and his only option was to sacrifice one for thousands, for us. For had he not we would have gotten the ultimate punishment into hell. So the real story is also about me and you and our very own salvation. For he knew and still knows all about each and every one of all of us. He knows the wrongs we will commit and when.

In Jeremiah 29 his word says

“11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

29:11 I know the thoughts that I think: The Lord here places considerable emphasis on His unchangeable plan to bring peace and not evil. a future . . . a hope: God had not terminated His relationship with Judah; He remembered His covenant promises of restoration (see Deut. 30:1–10).

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Christ is basically saying

I the living Christ know everything about you even before you knew yourself. I know all your plans even in silence without being told and all I have wanted is goods for you and not that of evil. I want the best for you thoughts of peace for you and not evil to give you a good future of peace and hope.

Christ’s love outnumbers the love of any kind we know, no one can show the deep love of Christ that he showed toward us, however he wants to teach us the love so that we may be in his own image. He had Judah betray him and yet he still accepted him as one of his. He had peter deny knowledge of him and knowing him in anyway yet he still continued to love him in every way. That is the kind of live God has towards us. None of us can Love that much as much as he did for if we were backstabbed we’d become hostile and end the relationship with the one who turned against us. He always remembers his covenants he made with us in restoration with us.

Be At Peace Through Christ

“10Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

Be at peace in knowledge That I am the messiah; I will be the high king, highly exalted in high regard both in heaven with my father and also amongst the people especially believers on the earth.

Jesus wants us to have peace knowing that he is God of all heaven and nations that he who he says he is and has risen as he promised.he wants us to know how powerful he is that his commandments and power are greater than that of any other power. That His father respects and loves him and that we mankind should also. Jesus shall be filled with much joy that he only would like to share with you. You are God’s children and he only wants best for you. He sees full potential in your image of who you are and he wants to better you by creating an image of him in you to be just like him. He wants you to touch the heart of others with love and good and share his stories and good news with you so that you may learn of his love

““I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”—GENESIS 28: 15

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.—HEBREWS 1: 3

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.—PROVERBS 3: 6 NASB”

The God Of Hope

“13Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Word Studies: hope”

Jesus Christ also known as God of hope may fill us with the spirit of Joy and Peace (his spirit) to be like him as we are believers are given. That we as followers may overflow in hope of the Holy Spirit that God has given to guide us in our walk ahead.

Jesus wants is to be filled with the joy, hope, peace and glory he is. He wants us to be in the image of he and the father. As loving and filled with the Joy and peace, love and hope that they themselves are. They want nothing more than a relationship with us to share the spirit in them with us giving us the same spirit that we also may share it with others. All to be done in Christ.

Faithful Followers In Christ

[ Take Up the Cross and Follow Him ] Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.

Luke 9:23-24 NKJV

And he said to all if your desire of your heart is to come with me you must forget yourself in flesh take up tour cross everyday and follow me which means stay faithful and in the word of his teachings for if you want to save your life give up the things of the world of the flesh for heavenly ones that are pleasing to me and my father in our name your sins have been paid for by Jesus sand you shall not worry

Matthew 6:34 New King James Version (NKJV) says

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Christ doesn’t want us to dwell in worry about today or tomorrow and to let go of the past for he seized all of our worries and sinful self of the flesh by death on the cross. Giving death to all of us of our worldly selves so that in 3 days we again can have life which will worry about itself and it’s own struggles. For in the day it brings it’s own troubles and struggles.

I states in Romans 6:23 New King James Version (NKJV)

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Which means

For the payment of our sins is death, but the gift in a relationship with him is eternal life in Christ Jesus our lord. For the condition of a sinful soul without God is death, but through god’s grace the one who are saved and believe have eternal life.That he renews our soul and resurrects us back to how his father God originally formed and created us as his children.Giving is a full new life by ransom.

Romans 3:23-24 New King James Version (NKJV)

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

For each and everyone of mankind, all of us as humans have sinned and falter in life falling short of the glory of God, being vindicated freely by his grave through the saving of our sinful nature only through and In Christ, Jesus

He paid all in full by death in the cross.

He Is Risen

He is Risen

For he is risen as he said

“6“ He is not here; for He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”

For Christ was put to death on the cross with a promise to us that in three days time he would rise again and take us to our place in heaven given Easter is our time to know that we have been forgiven by Christ’s death upon the cross for all the sins we commit.In this the old is, the flesh has died and we have been made whole again by the blood of Christ in Christ and by his love by the resurrection.

Three days after Good Friday, the death upon the cross, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James whom watched Jesus get crucified on the cross and heard his promise had went on Easter morning to the tomb where they had found it empty and the Christ gone from where he had lay. In

Matthew 28:6 in the holy bible is says

He is not here; for he is risen, as he said.

Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

For Mary Magdalene and Mary mother of James we’re so upset over Christ’s birth that they wanted to go to see the tomb where he lay. When the arrived only to find the tomb was open and where Jesus had lay and also the tomb were both empty. Even though they had been told that he shall rise again when they realized the tomb was empty they became scared and terrified thinking that someone had taken Christ’s body away till an angel had appeared saying do not fear he is alive he is risen like he had said that he would.

So they ran off to tell the deciples and everyone about the news and were filled with joy. Christ’s resurrection reminds us of his death and his love which he did to save us all as mankind flesh and sin.

Ephesians 2:14-18 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. 15 He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new people from the two groups. 16 Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.

17 He brought this Good News of peace to you Gentiles who were far away from him, and peace to the Jews who were near. 18 Now all of us can come to the Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.

Ephesians 2:14-18 New King James Version (NKJV)

Christ Our Peace

14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

By Christ Jews and gentiles were made in one by given peace given of Christ. By giving his body torture and death upon the cross he brought separation to barrier that kept them enemies.He brought and end to the Jewish law and all its commandments of the law and its rules to create out of the two races one new race of people in unity with himself, creating peace amongst the two.By death upon the cross Christ brought an end to the hostilities so that he created a unity between the two races into one body in God. Christ preach the good news to all -to the gentiles, who were distant from God, and to the Jews who remained close to God.it is through Christ and his faith and love that all of us Jews and gentiles are able to come into the one spirit in the presence of the Heavenly Father.

Pastors Explanation:

From Paul, who an apostle of Christ Jesus

To God’s people in Ephesus, who are faithful in their life in as one with Christ Jesus:

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! For in our relationship with Christ he has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world. Even before the world was made, God had already chosen us to be his through our relationship with Christ, so that we would be holy and without fault before him.

Because of his love God had already decided that through Jesus Christ he would make us his sons and daughters this was his pleasure and purpose. Let us praise God for his glorious grace, for the free gift he gave us in his dear Son! For by the blood of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven. How great is the grace of God, which he gave to us in such large measure!

In all his wisdom and insight God did what he had purposed, and made known to us the secret plan he had already decided to complete by means of Christ. This plan, which God will complete when the time is right, is to bring all creation together, everything in heaven and on earth, with Christ as head.

All things are done according to God’s plan and decision; and God chose us to be his own people in union with Christ because of his own purpose, based on what he had decided from the very beginning. Let us, then, who were the first to hope in Christ, praise God’s glory!

And you also became God’s people when you heard the true message, the Good News that brought you salvation. You believed in Christ, and God put his stamp of ownership on you by giving you the Holy Spirit he had promised. The Spirit is the guarantee that we shall receive what God has promised his people, and this assures us that God will give complete freedom to those who are his. Let us praise his glory!
