“My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness: I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.”
We love because God first loved us. God sent his son Jesus Christ to save us from our sinful nature. The world has answers for almost everything but no answer to the sinful nature that we have inherited.
When we look at Jesus, we see love and humility. We are counted as righteous before God because of our Faith on Jesus.
So, it is no longer just our good works to reach God but the work of Jesus. It is no longer just our prayer, but the intercession of Jesus on our behalf. It is no longer just our power, but the power of the Holy Spirit working in us.
What joy and peace that surrounds us when we are looking at Jesus for our everything. This blessed hope purifies us and we are an instrument of peace and love to the world.
Come, let us grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our Faith.
