Together in Christ


What an amazing thing this salvation we have. The grace we have through Christ Jesus. Some would ask why, why would God give such a thing to something as despicable as ourselves?  Because he is rich in mercy, and He has loved us:

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭4-6‬ KJV)

Even when we were dead in sin, that is to say, even though God could not even look upon us, so strong is His hate for sin, His grace, mercy, and love were enough to offer is a way out.   He wills that all men should come to know Him, and He gives us salvation. 

By grace we are saved!  Not by our own actions, not by our own will, but by the grace of God alone. 

With this powerful gift, we can sit together in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus. Think about that, if we are in Christ, than He fully surrounds us, we are completely covered by Him and His grace. 

I urge you to say a prayer to God, thanking Him for this clearly marked path into His love, mercy, and grace. 

God Bless
