Friends in Christ Weekly Message
February 9, 2008
Jesus Christ alone brought God's gift of kindness to many people. . . . God's gift made it possible for us to be acceptable to him, even though we have sinned many times. . . . God has been so kind to us, and he has accepted us because of Jesus. . . . because of the good thing that Christ has done, God accepts us and gives us the gift of life. . . . Jesus obeyed him and will make many people acceptable to God.
Romans 5:15-19 (excerpts) (CEV*)
We may mess up and do wrong things, but still God loves us. God is kind to us through Jesus Christ, accepts us and offers us the gift of life - real life, abundant life, eternal life. Jesus Christ yearns to work within us, making us acceptable to God and transforming us.
We may not feel worthy, but Christ finds us worthy of love, even love that extends to giving His life for us. May we allow Christ to do His work within us, transforming us into His image.
