“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:18).
All of what you experience, is it perhaps that you might have the opportunity to come to God? We know just enough to think that we know. The most intelligent humans know nothing compared to the omniscience of God. But we know that He desires that you come to Him. He desires that you abide with Him and become what He is making of you. Come then in faith and live into the life which is yours in Christ.
Christ indeed has accomplished what we could not. He gave us His righteousness and He took our unrighteousness. All of this so that the sin in you might be put to death in order that His life in you could live eternally. Come then and live into the life which is yours in Christ and know that in His goodness and mercy you are a part of His eternal and glorious plan. He has made you alive in Christ.
Lord Jesus, In You and You alone do I have hope and a future. Guide me in the goodness of Your mercy and grace so that I would forever hold fast to what You have made possible – life in and through You. Now and always, Lord Jesus, may I look to You as the One who leads me on the righteous journey You have set before me. Bring me into Your eternal realm to abide with You forever. Amen.
