Jesus Took So We Could Look Him Straight in the Eyes

“Jesus took our sins and shortcomings to his cross in order to present you and me to God as those who are now saved. When we look to Jesus with a believing heart in expectation to receive, we will find the true spiritual presence and presents that God gives. God now sets this daily joy before us at the table of life, and all the Word requests is for us to believe to receive, and it is our joy to enjoy by looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2).” ~LMJ~

Back into God’s Graces – Oh the Peace Received!

For it pleased the Father that in him {Jesus} should all fullness dwell; And {Jesus Christ}, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in {or on the} earth {believers}, or things in heaven {God in Christ}- Colossians 1:19-20. All the fullness of God is in Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ is in you, so in you rests the fullness of God. Jesus bridged the gap between God and man, for he was the missing link between God and man, connecting heaven’s holiest to us on earth, and Jesus himself made peace between God and man by the blood of his cross to reconcile all of us back to God. Jesus gave his sinless life for sinful man, his perfection for our imperfection to reconcile us back into God’s graces and His peace.” ~LMJ~
