Hope in His Power: By Believing in Him
Colossians 1:19-23 (NKJV)
19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. 21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight– 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
God loves us so much, yet we do not always understand His love. There are also times others will see His love and totally reject it or never receive it. Jesus going to the cross was for us to be reconciled and at peace through His blood. Jesus went so we can be forgiven and have faith in Him.
Having faith in Him can keep us grounded and steadfast as we put our hope in Him. His powerful love for us shows that He forgives, shows mercy, gives grace, provides hope, and provides an unconditional love. All will have an opportunity to accept His love so allow yourself to be drawn to His love and accept His love.
Others will see your actions, reactions or lack of action so prayerfully be all that God desires you to be as you walk with Him. His love for you and through you will allow others to be drawn to what they see in you. As they are drawn to His love you will be blessed, and He will get all the Glory.
Thank You for Your Loving Son. Jesus thank You for going to the cross so that Your blood shed for us does reconcile us. Your love is amazing and immeasurable, so we thank You and please help us to share Your love with others.
Thank You! Amen.
