Alrighty, week 3 day 3! I still haven't mastered the art of getting up before my kids so I'm still doing this piece by piece while Danielle does school work, getting up frequently to tend to the other 3 kidlets!Scripture.
7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Here, once again is the words us and together. I love those words. It makes me feel so connected to fellow believers! And that we all sit TOGETHER in heavenly places! I want to research that phrase "in Christ" more... oh wow...
In Christ - We are one as a body of believers
5so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
28There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
6This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
This is so very encouraging to read. There is so much more I found it on this page.
Besides all that, verse 7 reminds us that He is kind enough to us to show us the riches of His grace.
All those who believe will sit with me in heavenly places so I should treat all fellow believers with love, respect and kindness. I need to be humble and remember that as a follower of Jesus I need to act like Him. I have the power THROUGH my Lord to do this!
Firstly, this would be so much more meaningful if only I could get up before the kids. Lord, get me up tomorrow and remind me that I want to stay up! Keep me focused on my need to be close to you so that I can start my day off right!
Second, thank you for humbling me and reminding me that I am part of a whole group of believers and that we are TOGETHER with the same purpose! Thank you for showing me your grace, even though I really don't deserve it.
