A New People
Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Mercy = when God does not give us what we deserve.
As the church, we were once a people under God’s wrath because of our sin and rejection of Christ.
But because of God’s grace, we have now received mercy and the forgiveness of sins in order to be a unique people, a people who worship God and declare His goodness to the Nations.
So when I think about proclaiming the excellencies of God its not hard when I remember. Its not a duty. It becomes a Joy.
God calls us to an act of remembrance. An intentional remembering!
When was the last time you set back and remembered your Testimony?
When I think back over my life and I remember the goodness of God
What joy and freedom Christs brings.
