Purchased For Eternity
"You were bought with a price, do not become slaves to men (the world)."
1 Corinthians 7:23
Don’t believe the lies that try to enslave you into thinking you're inadequate. Social media makes it look like everyone has a fantastic life. Magazine ads give an unrealistic view of what we should look like. There is a cream to take away the lines on your face or a new procedure to take away baldness. These things make us doubt our worth. And once you buy into it, you’re trapped into thinking you can’t go without checking Facebook or Twitter—spending money on things you can’t afford.
"Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of God." Hebrews 12:2
Chains broken, strongholds torn down and captivity’s doors ripped apart. The veil to God’s presence was torn from top to bottom, giving access where there was none before. Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price to free us. He did it knowingly, willingly and—hear this my friends—with great joy!
AND he did it for us!!
Joy? In us? Father God saw us at our worst and said “she is valuable...he is worth everything to me”. The unexplainable, indescribable love of God set you free!
"He did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things." Romans 8:32
You are loved beyond measure. You can’t lose God's gift, because it comes with a lifetime guarantee.
"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39
One thing we need to remember about the love of God--it is not based on feelings. Our feelings are based on human emotion, on external circumstances. God’s love for us is Fact. It doesn’t matter how things are going, whether you feel happy or any other emotion.
God’s love just Is.
"Give thanks to the God of heaven, for His steadfast love endures forever." Psalm 136:26
