where-is-your-glory

by Shari Abbott, Reasons for Hope* Jesus

God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.  (Galatians 6:14)

The cross was a victory!!!  Our sins have been nailed to His cross and we have been crucified with Him.

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, has he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (Colossians 2:13-14)

His death paid the penalty for our sins and His resurrection gives us new life, eternally with Him.  He clothes us with His righteousness and makes us worthy to forever dwell with Him.

Our sins have been paid for by the precious blood of Jesus, shed for us on the cross — and God remembers our sins no more.

I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.  (Isaiah 43:25)

In the cross of Jesus Christ

we lose our fears and obtain the sweetest comforts.

we find our rest and a foretaste of promised glory.

we obtain a hope eternal and an assurance of life everlasting.

 

Oh, in the cross of Jesus Christ we see

the symbol of our faith

the sorrow of our sins

the sacrifice of our Saviour

the surety of our redemption

and the glory of our souls.

 

God forbid that I should glory,

save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by whom the world is crucified unto me,

and I unto the world.  (Galatians 6:14)

Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

Do not be anxious about anything.  (Phil 4:6)

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must rightly remember who is in control.  Our God is sovereign over all things, including COVID-19.  As Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) said, “The sovereignty of God is a soft pillow on which weary people lay their heads.” 

Remember also God’s gracious promise, and that it is true and He is faithful to keep it:  Hebrews 13:5 …”I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”  The next verse remind us of the power that comes in trusting God and how we can live:  Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man [or COVID-19] shall do to me.

God loves us, and in Christ we find confidence and calm in times of uncertainty and trouble.  When we trust in God, fear is replaced with faith, stress is replaced with strength, anxiety is gone and hope abounds, problems become opportunities, and we are able to receive the blessings God has for us in the midst of difficult circumstances. Turn to Jesus. He will lead you to the still waters and give rest for your troubled soul.  

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast…Hebrews 6:19

****************************

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
