Rest in Redemption

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

1 Peter 1:3

“It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation.”

Max's Message

Let the cross convince you. Be settled about God's faithfulness. In one of the psalms the writer described a person of faith with these words: "He is settled in his mind that Jehovah will take care of him" (Psalm 112:7). Life has many unanswered questions, but God's ability to save needn't be one of them. Let this issue be settled once and for all.

Look at you. Like the Israelites of old you have crossed the Jordan. There is no mud on your sandals, no water on your robe. There is no sin on your record, no guilt attached to your name. Let there be no doubt in your heart. If God "did not spare his own Son but gave him for us all," will he not also give you all you need for a Promised Land life (Romans 8:32)?

Join the chorus of the confident and declare, "I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love...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)

Rest in your redemption. The past is past. The future is bright. God's Word is sure. His work is finished.

A new season awaits you.
