(KJV.) EPHESIANS 2:4-6
(4) But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
(5) Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
(6) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
(7) That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
ARE WE THERE YET?
But after we receive the free grace, kindness and salvation without self efforts, but according to his mercy we were saved by repairing and renewing of our hearts and minds by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, overflowing its power resources upon our hearts that we are declared to be free of the blame of sins; with that in mind, let us walk in the faith of his righteousness, maintain our bodies in holiness, love one another with the love of Jesus Christ; think of the goodness and mercies of our Father shown through his love, emulate his attributes towards humanity, regardless of who they are on earth; see people through the lenses of Jesus Christ, have mercy, compassion on others; saved or unsaved, believers or unbelievers the same way: for Jesus Christ said, "....I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. refer to Matthew 9:13; therefore, if we were not sinners on earth, Jesus would not have suffered, died on the cross, rose up again to redeem the world of iniquities; if there are no sinners in this world, Jesus would not have commanded believers to go out into the world and preach the gospel to humanity for repentance; and sat on the right hand of our Father, as an advocate pleading our sins before him; therefore, as we have receive salvation and grace on our ways to eternity; let us think positively towards others, not negatively, endeavor to bring souls along rightful pathways through ministrations of faith into the last boat of salvation, which is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; without condemnations, let us leave condemnations to Jesus Christ alone; there is a day set aside for condemnation; rather, let us emulate his love toward one another, without resentments, in other for them to see the illuminating lights of Jesus Christ shine from within our mortal bodies, endeavor to come closer to his lights, join the faith of his righteousness to glorify of our heavenly Father forevermore.
Dearly beloved, salvation was given by grace thorough faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; it is the gift from our Father, not because of self efforts, that anyone should boast; for we are servants of the vineyard of glory, chosen for purposes of our Father, before we were born, that we should fulfill those purposes; therefore, when iniquities overwhelmed humanity, darkness overshadow the earth; Jesus came to eradicate all our iniquities, that we may be saved, come boldly unto him, and receive salvation, free grace, hope, peace forever and evermore. Are we there yet? Amen and Amen!
