Ephesians 2:4-7 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
God’s mercy and grace is the key to eternal life through Jesus Christ. When Adam sinned, God could of at that point destroyed man because of their sin. Yet, God loved us so much that He Himself through Jesus Christ became sin for us. Every time we come to the Lord we need to be on our knees in thanks and praise to Him for His love for us. Each and every time a person comes to Jesus Christ and the Cross of Calvary we see the Glory and Riches of God displayed. We are then given the promise that we will be raised up together to be with Jesus in heaven. Throughout the ages we have seen over and over again the grace and mercy of our God. What a day that will be when we see Jesus return and in an instant we will be caught up into the sky with Jesus. Pastor Tom
